Leading from the front. 💪

Check out this post, about one of the amazing Company Commanders that trains Recruits once they arrive onboard U.S. Coast Guard Training Center Cape May.

Please join us in congratulating Chief Petty Officer Miguel Resto from Training Center (Mission Support Division), Cape May, N.J., Jersey, as the Coast Guard winner of the 2020 League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) excellence in service.

The distinction recognizes outstanding individuals who advance diversity, education, economics and health in communities with large under-represented populations.

As a qualified section and company commander, Chief Resto recognized the importance of each recruit's first experiences in a Coast Guard culture that values diversity, personal accountability and a strict adherence to our core values of honor, respect, and devotion to duty.

Having struggled with English proficiency when he joined the service, Chief Resto acknowledged the need to assist other individuals, who have difficulties overcoming the language barrier.

Consequently, he took the initiative to translate training materials into Spanish, thus improving accessibility for recruits who speak English as a second language. By working to align training standards with the Coast Guard's Diversity and Inclusion Strategic goals, his efforts led to the revision of the Recruit Training Standard Operating Procedure used to govern the instruction for 3,800 personnel annually.

His work increased the number of graduates and many who benefited from his efforts emerged as recruit company award winners.

¡Felicidades!

Originally from Oviedo, Florida, Castro graduated basic training in August, before reporting to the Stone where she now works in the engineering department.

Yesterday I had the honor of presiding at the commissioning ceremony for USCGC CHARLES MOULTHROPE, the 41st Sentinel-class cutter. MOULTHROPE is one of six fast response cutters that will be homeported in Manama, Bahrain, replacing the 110-foot Island Class Patrol Boats supporting the Patrol Forces Southwest Asia (PATFORSWA) mission.

Seaman Charles Moulthrope was a non-rate assigned to the Revenue Cutter COMMODORE PERRY, when in April 1896, he jumped overboard in frigid waters to save the lives of four fellow crewmen, whose small boat had capsized. Seaman Mouthrope was posthumously awarded the Gold Life Saving Medal yesterday during the commissioning ceremony.

Charles Moulthrope's actions illustrate a legacy of selfless sacrifice which is inherent in Coast Guard culture. This cutter will be the first modern cutter named for an enlisted member of the Revenue Cutter Service.

"I joined the Coast Guard to better myself, learn new skills and have new experiences. My roles at Station Bodega Bay are being a qualified coxswain, boarding officer, and the navigation petty officer. One of my favorite memories has been a search-and-rescue case where I acted as a surface swimmer and actually used uncommon rescue training to save three lives."

#ShipmateSaturday meet Boatswains Mate Third Class Cori Oelkers from Corona, California. She has had a unique career serving as both a non-rate on Waesche and returning again as a Petty Officer. In total she has spent three and half years on board the cutter in three different departments. Oelkers comes from a family with a long history of military service. She represents her family as the 6th generation to serve in a United States Military branch and the first member to serve in the Coast Guard. “I take pride in carrying on the family tradition and serving my country,” said Oelkers. “In addition to tradition I also joined to travel and see the world from a different perspective.” Oelkers also serves as a helicopter tie-down, boat crew and boarding team member on board Waesche. “It’s not all hard work underway we get some downtown to have steel beaches, swim calls and even some pretty extraordinary port calls.” She is still undecided on whether she is making this a career but for now she’s just enjoying driving small boats and visiting new places!

Our #SaturdayShoutout goes out to Chief Dimitri Brisker, an Electrician's Mate aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Waesche, who was awarded the 2020 Hopley Yeaton Superior Enlisted Cutterman award!

Chief Brisker showed outstanding leadership while Waesche was transiting across the Pacific Ocean.

During the voyage, the cutter experienced a major class bravo fire on one of the main diesel engines that rapidly climbed eight decks and spread to the interior bulkhead of the ammunition magazine. Displaying incredible bravery and foresightedness as a member of the Rapid Response Team, Brisker managed initial response efforts. At great risk to his own personal safety, Brisker then led an attack team topside to combat the fire immediately adjacent to several ammunition magazines, preventing cascading casualties from exploding ordnance. He then cleared hot spots, overhauled damaged spaces, dewatered compartments, and enacted makeshift repairs to restore propulsion for avoidance of a fast-approaching tropical storm.

Brisker is the Command Chief, the senior Engineering Officer of the Watch, a Damage Control Training Team and Engineering Casualty Control Training Team member, an advanced Motor Turbine technician and Cutterman qualification program manager.

During their recent deployment he also conducted a Cutterman ceremony for Waesche's two newest permanent Cutterman.

In this documentary series, we spoke with Petty Officer 1st Class Kimberly Dechmerowski, an avionics electrical technician. Dechmerowski is the first female gunner of Helicopter Interdiction Tactical Squadron and shares what that role entailed.

HITRON operations started as an experiment in 1998 to halt the flow of illegal drugs into the U.S. Drug trafficking organizations primarily used "go-fast" boats, high-speed smuggling vessels capable of traveling over twice the speed of Coast Guard cutters. The Coast Guard needed a way to counter the threat.

In late 1998, six Coast Guard pilots and four enlisted aircrew members developed tactics and procedures to utilize armed helicopters operating aboard Coast Guard cutters to answer the call.

HITRON helicopters operate in known smuggling vectors and rely on expertly trained aircrews and precision marksmen to disable go-fast drug smuggling vessels in the event suspects refuse to comply with verbal and visual warnings for law enforcement boardings under international maritime law. This series focuses on the founding members, pioneers, and stakeholders who have played an essential part in HITRON's history.

What an amazing story!

#FacesOfTheCoastGuard

"I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. After seeing an advertisement in the newspaper, I joined the Coast Guard. I knew nothing about the Service, but I was focused on the GI bill for college, tuition assistance, and world travel.

Using a payphone, I used my last two quarters to call a recruiter to inquire about the Coast Guard since my knowledge was nonexistent. I was not aware the CG was a military service; imagine my surprise! MKC DeLuca, I will never forget him. He told me I could be anything I wanted to be in CG, and advancing was based on my own motivation. He made being a Chief sound like the best thing ever. It still amazes me how some people make their mark without even knowing. I just knew I wanted to be a Chief one day, just like him, even if I was getting out in four years. The dreams of an 18-year-old!

In less than three weeks, I arrived at boot camp, the same day I was supposed to start school at Northeastern University. I was the only black person in a company of 64 recruits and one of eight females, Echo 143. My Company Commander, Chief Booth, never made me feel different, but I knew I stood out. I had dreads because I grew up Rastafarian; the CCs didn't know if it was my natural hair. If I twitched, they noticed. If I blinked when I wasn't supposed to, they also noticed. That was my first indication that I was memorable because I didn't blend; it was up to me to make sure my actions were memorable and positive.

I was assigned to the Damage Control shop as a Seaman at Group Galveston, and the Chief was amazing. As the only female in that department, I felt included in everything. Chief encouraged me to strike quartermaster (QM); as soon as I received my course material, the program was discontinued. All A schools were closed except for Radarman (RD) and Subsistent Specialist (SS now CS). I was mess cooking for eight months in some form or the other, and I did not want to be a SS. I was qualified for RD "A" school, and it was only a two weeks wait. Guess what? It was the school for me. After 27 years, I still think that I made the right choice, all on a whim.

I got orders to the mighty CGC Sherman (WHEC-720), where I met three Chiefs that had the most impact on my personal and professional life. I would not be in the Coast Guard beyond four years without them. Two-female Senior Chiefs and my Chief, John Moore. I was taught the importance of personal growth, such as educational, financial, and cultural growth. I should always be ready to advance because all of the requirements are completed. The most important lesson I learned was to take care of my people and myself, such as making time for medical.

I am still here 27 years later. I am a Master Chief with a Master's Degree and still traveling the world. It was all because of the positive influences of Chiefs that I encountered within my first four years. I am now the Command Master Chief (CMC) for the Deputy Commandant for Operations. I have the honor to influence many. I still strive to make my actions and decisions memorable and have a positive effect.

Chiefs can have a tremendous impact on those they lead. As Chiefs, we each have to choose how to influence and be memorable in a positive way. The Chiefs I encountered in my first four years didn't always look like me, but they always made sure I felt included and valued."
