The state has determined that it is in its best interest to sell a portion of the Mt. Edgecumbe campus to the Coast Guard, to construct a dock to homeport the new fast-response cutter Douglas Denman.
Just a week after the cutter Kukui changed hands, Air Station Sitka has a new commanding officer. The station held a change of command ceremony this/Friday morning at the hangar. An audience of Coast Guard officers, community members, friends and family recognized outgoing Captain Brian McLaughlin, and incoming Commander Vincent Jansen.
