District Commodore
Fifth District Northern Region
United States Coast Guard Auxiliary


Since its inception on June 23, 1939, the Coast Guard Auxiliary has faithfully worked with the Coast Guard to save lives and educate the public in boating safety.   The efforts of our Auxiliary members will be focused on programs that reduce loss of life, personal injuries, and property damage while assisting the Coast Guard with maritime domain awareness and mission execution. Our objective will be to assist  our boating public in having a safe, secure, and enjoyable boating experience. Our effectiveness to the boating public can be solely determined by the training and proficiency of our members.

Our area of responsibility includes the State of Delaware, the Southern half of New Jersey, and central and eastern Pennsylvania.

It is my goal that we offer our members the highest level of training in all areas of our proficiencies.  I feel that we should ensure that the classes that are developed by Auxiliary National Headquarters and offered by our members meet the level that our boating public requires.  Our instructors also must be highly trained and able to covey the educational materials to the boating public.  If you are a U.S. Citizen and 17 years of age or older, you can join and be part of the Team – that is TEAM COAST GUARD.  We belong to a heroic family of men and women who serve our country in a most unique way.  We have a humanitarian cause to save the distressed, educate the willing, and serve the nation.  With your help, my leadership team, staff and I will help make District Five North Region a success through,
