The Commodore has been a member of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary for thirty-one-years and is currently serving as the District Commodore, 11th Coast Guard Auxiliary District. He is responsible for the supervision of the internal and external operations of the District, which includes nine Divisions in four States, twenty-one Departments and seventeen Special Appointments.
