During my twenty one years working with the United States Coast Guard, So far, I had the opportunity to be sent under orders to six USCG Expos, two Small Vessel Security Treats Forums, and one Law Enforcement Vessel Conference.. At one of the USCG Expos in New Orleans, we were visited by then the Commandant of the USCG. Admiral Allen. Also pictured with her back to the my Camera was an RCMP Officer from British Columbia Canada. The RCMP started a sister program of our USCG "Citizen's Action network" with the same name. ( Before Congress cut off our Future Funding that we never had, because most of the funds were received from other programs that failed to use all their funding?? So we took it. ) So our Shoreline Security program involved all of USCG District 13 but also went up into Canada. Great working relationship. We in the end had over (600) shoreline Residents that were members. The RCMP Officer and her husband are still my friends. The 2nd picture is when the USCG Commandant, Admiral Collins visted our Booth at a USCG Expo in California. On the Right is my USCG POC, Lt. Commander Andre Billeaudeaux who started and was in charge of three of the D-13 Security programs, (Eyes on the Sound) (Northwest Watch) and the USCG (Citizen's Action Network" Andre then went on to beiing promoted to USCG Commander personally awarded by then Commandant Allen. Next to Commandant Collins is PA Adam Eggars, who later served at the Pentagon for the USCG in Public Affairs, and finally me, Robert Lyden, DSO, Aux. District 13 USCG.
