The US Coast Guard was the topic of conversation among community leaders Monday afternoon.
The Rotary Club of Savannah welcomed Rear Admiral David Kunkel to their weekly meeting at Carey Hilliard's. Kunkel spoke about the Coast Guard duties, his job as rear admiral, and port security.
Savannah is home to the sixth largest container port in the country.
"It was a bit surprising," Kunkel said. "You think of Savannah, you think of a small town, but Savannah's port is growing and is very productive and we will need port partnership to work together."
Kunkel also spoke about the Coast Guard's work with the local community and Savannah's growth in general.
