Coast Guard Sector Anchorage Holds Modified Change of Command Ceremony
Captain Leanne Lusk relieved Captain Sean MacKenzie as commanding officer of Coast Guard Sector Anchorage in a change of command ceremony at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
Captain Gregory Fuller, Chief of Staff Coast Guard Seventeenth District, presided over the event.
Lusk was previously assigned as the deputy commander of Coast Guard Sector Lake Michigan in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She directed all Coast Guard operations in a four-state area on and around Lake Michigan and the Illinois Waterway. She led nearly 700 Coast Guardsmen on the Sector staff and at eighteen boat stations, two Aids to Navigation teams, Marine Safety Unit Chicago, Marine Safety Detachment Sturgeon Bay, and Sector Field Office Grand Haven.
“It has been a true honor and privilege to serve at Sector Anchorage,” said MacKenzie. “I am very proud of our Coast Guard members, and I am thankful for the great partners we have in Alaska.”
MacKenzie will transfer to his new post at Africa Command in Germany.
