090728-N-9860Y-001SEATTLE – No Blue Angels, no Navy ship tours, and now the Coast Guard won’t be dropping anchor at Seafair.

U.S. Coast Guard cutters that have been visiting Seafair for decades have had to cancel their annual appearance.

The cancellation also applies to Coast Guard helicopters.

Budget shortfalls due to federal sequestration are forcing the Coast Guard, Navy and other military services to cut back on formal community outreach programs in 2013.
