Chief Petty Officer Roger Holland receives the silver badge signifying the responsibilities of Reserve Sector Anchorage Command Chief from Capt. Jason Fosdick, commander Sector Anchorage at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 3, 2009.

Holland, a native of New Orleans and a reservist in the Coast Guard for 18 years, is the first Reserve Sector Command Chief in Alaska.

“I look forward to the responsibilities of the new position and working in Alaska,” said Holland. “I have heard the command chief position better described as a position of service rather than being in charge of anyone. It is my job to ensure the success of my fellow Coast Guardsmen whether it is by helping them achieve their goals or removing obstacles from their path.”
