In a statement released to the press on June 19, the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) announced that Capt. James T. Doherty would relieve Capt. Robert J. Wenzel as commanding officer of the USCG Navigation Center in Alexandria, Va. The change of command ceremony reportedly took place on June 25.

Capt. Wenzel has retired from active duty after a distinguished career spanning 27 years. Capt. Doherty's last assignment was as chief of the Streamlining and Implementation Team from 1995-1996.

The Navigation Center also houses the Navigation Information Service, which provides status information on all U.S. radionavigation systems to the user community.
