Earl Olson

Flotilla 76 member Earl Olson is recognized for his outstanding leadership during the 2018 Portland Rose Festival Fleet Week in June. His participation in the planning and preparation with the Auxiliary operational facility owners, active duty Coast Guard, and other agencies enabled him to develop an operational plan for Auxiliary activities during the week-long festival. Mr. Olson not only coordinated Auxiliary operations but acted as AUXPATCOM to orchestrate communications among the operational facilities charged with maintaining the safety zone for visiting naval ships, guiding recreational and commercial vessels through the safety zone, and maintaining watch during the dragon boat races. His hard work, planning and leadership skills resulted in a very successful effort by the Auxiliary throughout the festival.

AUXILIARIST OF THE WEEK

The Aids to Navigation Team (ANT) Astoria (Tongue Point) provides all of the dayboards for District 13. At one time there were 6 Auxiliarists involved in this very important mission, now there is just one dedicated member, Corey Deck, who has been working at the ANT almost every day for several years producing approximately 100 boards a month. His commitment to duty is greatly appreciated by the Coast Guard. Steve Feldscher, D13 ATON Hardware Equipment Specialist, stated “It is a pleasure to work with Corey. He is a very valuable asset to the Coast Guard and I wish we had a few more volunteers just like him.” In addition to his work at the ANT, Corey serves as the Flotilla 71 Vice Flotilla Commander, Assistant District Staff Officer-Vessel Examiners for the Southern Area of the District, and stands ramp duty at the Hammond Boat Ramp during Buoy 10 fishing activities.
