District Announcements

Forty Years of Service

Robert J. Sajnovsky is a Professor Emeritus.  A graduate of Notre Dame University, Bob is a product of the midwest with strong values and high standards.  He is also an extraordinary Auxiliarist with forty years of active leadership in our organization. Bob has served as flotilla commander for Guam 2-24, division commander and DCAPT for multiple terms.  He and his spouse, Cynthia Sajnovsky, share a strong interest in the Auxiliary with perennial active roles.

They have a 24 foot Bayliner trophy in service as an Auxiliary Facility.  Bob leads the charge on menber training in both classroom and on the water.  He is meticulous and caring.  Bob understands human nature, gets the buy in and motivates the member to set and achieve expanding goals.  Bob has other interests.  He is active in the arts and public radio.  However, nothing stirs his passion more than the Auxiliary.

Over the years, Bob has suffered some medical setbacks.  None have dampened his Auxiliary enthusiasm or spirit.  He has served as operations leader for the District and the Division.  Bob serves as liaison with Sector and meets with gold every week to ascertain how we can best serve their needs.  He has attended more Changes of Watch than any active duty member considering his 40 years of service. The leadership may differ, but Bob always connects and serves as a font of institutional knowledge. 

This month marks the 78th Anniversary of the founding of the Coast Guard Auxiliary.  Robert Sajnovsky has been an active leader in the Auxiliary for more than half of that time. Quite remarkable and fortunate for us.
