Commodore’s Message

  D5NR Shipmates,   As we enter 2023, I wish you and your family a safe and healthy New Year. 
  In closing out 2022 and entering a new year I share that the Coast Guard is looking for us to help even more. I have delivered the message at the Changes of Watch I have attended that we are more relevant and needed today than at any point since WWII. As we go into 2023, we are thankful and blessed to have you moving the Fifth District-Northern Region into the new year full-steam ahead.    2022 saw us as the force-multiplying glue in almost every area of service by providing essential back-fill for Team Coast Guard. In our deploying to the South-west border, we have further shown our importance to our fellow Department of Homeland Security constituents. We have helped our nation in its efforts to be more secure, safe and informed. This all through the selfless sacrifices you, our members, contribute every day. The Auxiliary has delivered RBS, stood as watch-standers, provided valuable services on Cutters (including in the Arctic on the CGC Healey), and contributed at Sector DE Bay, and almost every station in our AOR. These are just a few examples of the crucial contributions provided. Thank you!   I especially want to thank COMO Joe Giannattasio for his tireless efforts in leading D5NR over these past two years.   EXCOM and I wish you a happy and safe New Year.

We look forward to serving with you in 2023
    Semper Paratus,

COMO Kurt P. Sarac, Sr.
District Commodore
Fifth District-Northern Region
U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary
