DCDRs and FCs,
Today, 23 June, is the 80th birthday of the US Coast Guard Auxiliary.
Your DCOS, Joe Giannattasio and I had the honor of representing you and our district at a celebration of the 80th birthday. The event, hosted by our Director, Lieutenant Commander Victoria Taylor and Sector Commander Captain Scott Anderson, was held at the galley at Sector Delaware Bay on Thursday morning. The Auxiliarists who work at Sector attended along with many other Auxiliary and Active Duty members.
Our relationship with our Active Duty, Reserve and Civilian Employee shipmates has never been stronger and we thank them for this recognition of our history. Admiral Carl Schultz noted on his Facebook page today: “A Happy 80th anniversary to the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary! Since 1939, Auxiliarists have volunteered their time and resources by land, air, and sea to ensure the safety of our waterways and support our servicemembers. To the more than 25,000 Auxiliarists serving communities throughout our Nation, thank you for your devotion to duty. Semper Paratus!”
