Coast Guard Auxiliarist To Be Honored

Thursday, June 13, 2002
The flagpole at the Coast Guard Base in Woods Hole will be dedicated to Coast Guard Auxiliarist John "Jack" Cowley on Flag Day, June 14 at 8 a.m. Prominently viewed from Water Street, the flagpole sits in front of the Coast Guard base in Woods Hole. It will be dedicated during a brief ceremony to the faithful auxiliarist who has overseen six years worth of morning colors, the official raising of the American flag each morning. Since his arrival at Group Woods Hole over six years ago, Jack has faithfully volunteered over 8,000 hours of administrative support for the Coast Guard Auxiliary. In addition to his administrative work, he patrols the waters around Cape Cod and Boston on his 36-foot Trojan Spindrift ensuring the safety of the area's mariners. Jack Cowley is a World War II veteran, landing in Guadalcanal with the U.S. Marine Corps. He is also retired from the Wrentham, Mass., Police Department. The ceremony will be presided over by the Group Commander, Capt. James Murray. The media is invited to attend.
