Graves was selected as the 2011 Coast Guard Outstanding Military Spouse. The award was presented by the Hawaii Navy League to honor the spouses of military members from all branches of the military. The recipients of this year’s awards have functioned as the volunteer communication and organizational focal point for units that were or still are deployed in the theater of hostile operations during the calendar year of 2011. The award recipients were each presented a $500.00 check from the Navy League’s offices on the 50-yard line prior to kickoff. The spouses also received a certificate from the Hawaii State Legislature and Proclamation from the City and County Honolulu. (U.S. Coast Guard photo by Petty Officer 3rd Class Anthony L. Soto)
