Commanding Officer

Coast Guard Community Services Command


My command philosophy is very simple, and it is “Take care of yourself, take care of your shipmates and take care of your family”.  Community Services Command will always strive to meet or exceed our customer service and mission support expectations and foster an environment where teamwork, communications, innovation and leadership inspires and empowers us toward relentless pursuit of excellence in all that we do.


The Coast Guard's Core Values of Honor, Respect, and Devotion to Duty guide us as we execute our assigned duties and how we represent ourselves in our daily lives. We adhere to our Commandant's guiding principles of Service to Nation, Duty to People and Commitment to Excellence.  I am deeply honored to serve as Commanding Officer of Community Services Command, and as a cohesive team will always strive to live and work by our Guiding Principles. We will carry out the Commandant's direction which states "We will serve our Nation through the selfless performance of our missions, we will honor our duty to protect those we serve and those who serve with us and we will commit ourselves to excellence by supporting and executing our operations in a proficient and professional manner".  The very nature of the mission of Community Services Command fits perfectly within the Commandant’s direction, as no other unit, by nature of their mission positively and directly impacts every member of the Coast Guard family including our active duty and reserve military personnel, civilian employees, auxiliary, Coast Guard families, retirees and veterans.
