Cmdr. Geoffrey S. Deas assumed command of Coast Guard Port Security Unit 309 from Cmdr. Gerald A. “Jerry” Nauert during a change-of-command ceremony at the PSU 309 Facility, Lake Erie Business Park in Port Clinton, Saturday.

Deas became the ninth commanding officer of PSU 309 during the formal ceremony officiated by Capt. Thomas E. Crabbs of the Alameda, Calif., based Coast Guard Pacific Area command.  The ceremony constituted the continuity of the commanding officer’s authority and represented a total transfer of accountability from one individual to another. 

Deas came to PSU 309 from Coast Guard Pacific Area where he served as the Riverine Force Program Manager and Assistant Port Security Unit Force Manager.

Nauert recently served as deputy commander, Commander, Task Group 56.5.1 in Kuwait while the unit was deployed.
