While I Was Out Of Town....

The Coast Guard had an event here in Boston.

On Friday, May 14, 2010 District 1 celebrated a Change of Command and a Retirement

From the Web Journal of Admiral Thad Allen

D1 Change of Command and RADM Nimmich Retirement

Earlier today, RADM Dan Neptun relieved RADM Joe Nimmich as the First District Commander in an outstanding ceremony at Boston's historic Faneuil Hall. The Change of Command is a time-honored tradition that represents a transfer of total responsibility, authority, and accountability from one individual to another. VADM Parker, our Atlantic Area Commander, was the presiding official.

It was my honor to preside over RADM Nimmich's retirement ceremony. Having known and served with RADM Nimmich for more than 37 years, I had the distinct pleasure of highlighting his career of dedicated service and his unmatched commitment to the well-being of those that have worked both with and for him. His performance and the extraordinary work of the men and women of the First District is second-to-none.

Congratulations to RADM Nimmich (Ret.), and best of luck to RADM Neptun!

VADM David Pekoske
