1. FYI: To all Coast Guard Auxiliary Personnel:
It is my distinct honor to relieve the watch as your Chief Director. The Coast Guard Auxiliary has a myriad of ever-evolving missions that includes our ultimate responsibility to promote and improve Recreational Boating Safety as well as provide the Coast Guard with high quality operational, administrative, and logistical support. This is an awesome and humbling responsibility to shoulder, and one that requires unfailing accomplishment of the mission. I look forward to partnering with you in this endeavor.
Over the past 22 years, I've had the privilege to serve my country and the Coast Guard as both a cutterman and prevention officer. I've led Coast Guard personnel in both operational and staff assignments and also worked extensively with both the U.S. and international commercial shipping industry to solve regulatory issues. Now, as your Chief Director, I look forward to learning more about your missions and working with National Commodore Washburn and his staff to carry out the Auxiliary Strategic Plan goals laid out for us by Admiral Zukunft and Commodore Washburn.
When I'm not at work, I'm a devoted family man and I enjoy spending quality time with my wife, Tamara, and my five children that are between the ages of 18 and 6. We recently moved to a 40 acre estate in Stafford, Virginia and are learning the hard way just how much time and effort goes into starting a farm.

Ladies and gentlemen, you have my commitment that I will strive to work with you and lead in a way worthy of our mission, of your respect, and of the sacrifices that so many of you have made and continue to make to keep us safe and worthy of the public trust.
Thank you for your dedicated service and your commitment to our nation.
Captain Scott L. Johnson, U.S. Coast Guard
