This earmark request is for the 2010 fiscal year.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL-18) requests $2,800,000 for:
Florida Keys Community College
5901 College Road
Key West, FL 33040

Provide an advance in-water maritime security training program for the Department of Defense. This would be a good use of taxpayer money because it provides mission critical training to Navy divers and other Service customers responsible for securing service assets and maritime domains.

It is just amazing that Jill Landesberg-Boyle was able to make this happen. Who could have ever imagined that a small community college could have such a big part in a program like this? It just goes to show what leadership can do and that we do have hidden talents at our community colleges.
