17th District Coast Guard Auxiliary names new Commodore

The Coast Guard Auxiliary has long been a valuable resource for the Coast Guard. The contributions of the volunteers who make up the Auxiliary tremendously enhance the Coast Guard’s service and, every year, members from the 17th District Coast Guard Auxiliary gather to honor the accomplishments of their own during an awards banquet in Anchorage, Alaska. At this year’s event, however, they had another reason to celebrate; the naming of a new 17th District Coast Guard Auxiliary Commodore.
