Robert Rosenberg was cited for superior performance of duty while serving in the Coast Guard Auxiliary's Division 12 of the Northern Region of the Fifth Coast Guard District from May 2004 to May 2008. The award was presented by D. L. Scott, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Commander Sector Delaware Bay, at the Division 12 Change of Watch on November 15, 2008.
The award reads "Mr. Rosenberg displayed outstanding professionalism and operational expertise while serving as Division 12's Public Affairs Officer and Flotilla Commander 12-01 during this period. He personally educated over 600 boaters and has volunteered to man Safe Boating Display booths for nearly 300 hours. Mr. Rosenberg organized the 2008 Safe Boating Week kick off, which was attended by Delaware's Governor Minner and other high level state dignitaries. Mr. Rosenberg volunteered to become Coast Guard Station Indian River Inlet's Housing Officer and utilized his knowledge of the local area and housing market to directly assist eight newly assigned crewmembers in locating quality housing. This enabled members to live closer to the unit and saving them travel time and money. Mr. Rosenberg stood in excess of 4000 hours of communication watch at the unit, and was an invaluable force multiplier to the active duty crew. While on watch, Mr. Rosenberg was directly involved in 93 Search and Rescues. He was also responsible for qualifying 22 active duty watchstanders by working closely with unit members and ensuring their preparation and professional communication skills. On October 6th 2007 Mr. Rosenberg received a distress call from the M/V SUSIE II reporting two missing divers. Mr. Rosenberg quicky launched the CG41478 and assisted the OOD with coordinating the launch of a Coast Guard helicopter, which resulted in the quick recovery of the two divers. Mr. Rosenberg's diligence, perserverance, and devotion to duty are the most heartily commended and are in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Coast Guard and the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary."
