*** MEDIA ADVISORY *** New Commanding Officer at the helm of Coast Guard Cutter Juniper

June 23, 2015

BOSTON — Coast Guard Cutter Juniper is scheduled to hold a change of command ceremony Thursday in Newport, R.I.

The change of command ceremony is a time-honored military tradition. It is a formal ritual conducted before the assembled company of the command. It conveys to officers and enlisted personnel of the cutter that although the authority of command is relinquished by one person and assumed by another, it is still maintained without interruption.

Coast Guard Cutter Juniper is a 225-foot Seagoing Buoy Tender home-ported in Newport, R.I.  The primary mission of Cutter Juniper and her crew is to service short and long range aids to navigation. They are also capable of handling and assisting a variety of other missions such as maritime law enforcement, homeland security, ice breaking, environmental pollution response, and search and rescue. 

Media interested in attending are requested to RSVP to Petty Officer 2nd class LaNola Stone at 617-717-9609 by 4 p.m. Wednesday.
