USCGAUX_75_BTo the Men and Women of Our Coast Guard Auxiliary,

Seizing this opportunity on behalf of the Office of Auxiliary and Boating
Safety to render 2013 holiday season salutations and express gratitude for
your support and sustained servant leadership excellence.  This Office is
blessed to work with the finest leadership cadre and stout volunteer corps
our Nation has to offer.  We are especially thankful to lead the Coast
Guard’s Auxiliary Program and serve as your advocate throughout the Coast
Guard organization.  Around the clock and around the country, our Nation
benefits from your gifts of time, talent, and treasure.  THANK YOU for the
gifts you freely give each day.

The New Year will bring remarkable challenges.  Within those challenges will
be opportunities for the Auxiliary to excel anew.  As we enter the 75th
consecutive year of distinguished Auxiliary service, endeavor to continue
demonstrating the highest levels of honor, respect, and devotion to duty.

It is our privilege to forward ADM Papp’s holiday message and offer CG-BSX
best wishes for a safe and relaxing holiday season, and for a healthy and
prosperous New Year.

CAPT F. Thomas Boross
Chief, Office of Auxiliary and Boating Safety
