Tanker With Crucial Fuel Delivery Is Sighted Off Nome NY Times, January 13, 2012
Huzzah to Admiral Robert Papp, former Commanding Officer of the USCG Barque EAGLE for becoming the 24th Commandant of the United States Coast Guard.
Congratulations and thanks to Admiral Thad Allen who retired during today’s Change of Command Ceremony. But don’t expect Admiral Allen to be sunning himself on the beach somewhere in the Caribbean. President Obama had other plans when he appointed Allen to be the US government’s point person for the Deepwater Horizon sinking and oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Allen does not shy away from tough assignments. (Remember Elián Gonzáles and Hurricane Katrina?)
One of the highlights of the first year of my Weekly Leader podcast was when Admiral Allen was our guest on episode 5.
Congratulations, good luck and great success to Admiral’s Allen and Papp. We’re counting on you both!
