Maritime TV Mourns the Passing of Helen Delich Bentley
Helen Delich Bentley, 1923 - 2016
Maritime TV salutes the life and career of Congresswoman Helen Delich Bentley, a tireless champion for the U.S. maritime industry, who passed away on Saturday, August 6 in Timonium, Maryland. This memorable address from Bentley was delivered at MARAD’s first National Maritime Strategy Symposium in January of 2014 where at age 90, she issued a spirited call to action to unite as an industry and “rescue the remnants of our once proud Merchant Marine”. Her vision, energy and commitment to our industry will be sorely missed.
