The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary plays a large role in the day-to-day workings of the U.S. Coast Guard. You will most commonly find our First Coast Guard District Auxiliary members giving boating and paddlecraft safety classes. You can even schedule a boating safety check with our Aux members. They work heavily with our stations across the district helping to augment the watch. If you hail a local station while on the water, it will probably be an Auxiliary member answering you back. This week, Adm. Tiongson hosted the current and newly elected District Commodores in thanks for their service and leadership.

November is Month of the Military Family! MK3 Joanna Zito-Konopka and ME3 Nicholas Konopka are from New York and Nevada, respectively. Their story began when they met each other in Las Vegas, Nevada. From there, Nicholas joined the Coast Guard and Joanna joined the Navy Reserves where they were stationed near Chicago. After realizing their love for one another, they tied the knot, Joanna switched services to the Coast Guard, and then temporarily went their separate ways to attend A-Schools. They both rejoined each other in Massachusetts where Joanna received order to Station Woods Hole and Nicholas to U.S. Coast Guard Station Boston.

Fair winds and following seas, Shipmate! Andrew Fitzgerald passed over the bar this week. He was the last surviving member of the U.S. Coast Guard crew aboard the USCG Station Chatham motor lifeboat 36500 and is most noted for his heroism in the historic Pendleton rescue back in 1952.

Flooding and high winds are in the forecast for the Northeast this weekend! If you own a kayak, canoe, or paddle-board make sure you remove it from the water and store it far from the beach in a safe location. High winds and flooding can cause improperly stored paddle-craft to drift out to sea prompting unnecessary searches.

Last weekend, Rear Adm. Tiongson was honored to be the keynote speaker at the 40th Anniversary Celebration of the The Pilipino-American Association of New England, Inc. (PAMAS). Adm. Tiongson's father, a career Coast Guardsman, was one of the founding members of PAMAS in 1978. "Their original goal was to establish an association accessible to Filipino-Americans and their families serving in the military," said Tiongson. "Over the past forty years, PAMAS has emerged as one of the most active Filipino organizations to advocate for the preservation of Philippine culture in our country. The founding members were patriotic and deeply loyal Americans, who were proud of their ethnic heritage."

Military family appreciation month is a time to recognize the support Coast Guard families provide and the sacrifices they make. One way that the Coast Guard helps support family members is through the Ombudsman Program. The Ombudsman Program is intended to improve communication between the command and Coast Guard family members. Ombudsmen are communication links, provide information and referral resources, and act as advocates for family members. Revamping the current program is one of Rear Adm. Tiongson's highest priorities. Here is a short video about the Coast Guard's ombudsman program which is designed to offer year-round support for Coast Guard families.
