LIC Resident Elected To Top Post In U.S. Coast Guard Aux



Long Island City resident Anthony Reardon has been elected a division commander in the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. As the operational head of Division 5 covering Manhattan and part of The Bronx, he is responsible for overseeing the work of five flotillas engaged in search and rescue and safe boating education in the metro region. One of the responsibilities of Division 5 in New York is to assist the Coast Guard in patrolling the East River when the United Nations General Assembly convenes each September. The division also works with other agencies like the NYPD, the Red Cross and the military should there be a terrorist attack or other calamity in the region. The Auxiliary offers a variety of safe boating courses to the general public. Reardon has spent his professional life as a financial advisor. The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is composed of uniformed, non-military volunteer civilians who assist the Coast Guard in all of its varied missions, except for military and direct law enforcement. These men and women can be found on the nation’s waterways, in the air, in classrooms and on the dock, performing Maritime Domain Awareness patrols, safety patrols, vessel safety checks and public education. The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary was founded in 1939 by an Act of Congress as the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve and re-designated as the Auxiliary in 1941. Its 35,000 members donate millions of hours annually in support of Coast Guard missions. For more information on the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, visit www.cgaux.org.
