Response was professional

I would like to thank the Unified Command – U.S. Coast Guard, Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, SEAPRO, Phil Benner and his harbor staff, and Ralph Borders and the public works staff on their textbook oil spill response on the tragic sinking of the F/V Neptune. Your professionalism, response, and dedication were outstanding. A special thanks to the fishing fleet for its patience and understanding during the clean-up period.
