Coast Guard Cutter 'Wire' holds change of command ceremony in Saugerties, N.Y.

Capt. Gordon Loebl, commander of Coast Guard Sector New York, was the presiding official over the time-honored ceremony as Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Jason Cross relieved Senior Chief Petty Officer Thomas Cairns, former officer in charge of the Coast Guard Cutter Wire,  a 65-foot icebreaking tug homeported in Saugerties, N.Y. 

The Coast Guard Cutter Wire’s 7-person crew is responsible for domestic icebreaking, port security, search and rescue, aids to navigation and law enforcement operations.

Cross, a native of Wilmington, Vt., reports from Station Port O’Conner, Texas, where he served as executive petty officer.

The change of command ceremony is a formal, time-honored ceremony conducted before the assembled officers and enlisted persons of a command that formally restates the continuing authority of that command. The change of command is a transfer of total responsibility and authority from one individual to another.
