USCG’s First District Changes Leadership

Friday, May 03, 2002
The Coast Guard will hold a change of command ceremony at Faneuil Hall, Monday at 10:00 a.m., as Rear Admiral George N. Naccara will step down as commander of the First Coast Guard District, turning over leadership of the service's New England, New York and Northern New Jersey operations to Rear Admiral Vivien S. Crea. A number of VIPs will be in attendance, and senior Coast Guard officers will preside over the ceremony. Admiral Naccara will step down after 33 years of service, most recently as the First District Commander the past two years. Under his leadership, men and women of the First District responded to the worst terrorist attacks on U.S. soil in our nation's history by immediately establishing a security presence in Boston and New York harbors. Coast Guard units throughout New England remain at heightened states of awareness providing for the security of our homeland, while also protecting life at sea, protecting living marine resources, protecting against environmental disasters, and ensuring a safe and efficient Maritime Transportation System. Admiral Crea arrives to Boston from her position as Director of Information and Technology within Coast Guard Headquarters at Washington, DC. She is a career aviator, having flown nearly all aircraft in the service's inventory, and she has commanded Air Stations in Clearwater, Fla., and Detroit. She has also served as a Military Aide to former-President Ronald Reagan.
