    Guam's Guardians... "Guam may be where America’s day begins, but at Station Apra Harbor in Santa Rita, Guam, reservists are known to be busy day and night. The Coast Guard Reserve has a long history of serving the people of the Pacific and continues to play a critical role in the local community."

    Is this yours? The Coast Guard is seeking the public’s help identifying the owner of an unmanned and adrift green, blue and white kayak found approximately 2 miles south of Iroquois Point, Monday. An MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew from U.S. Coast Guard Airsta Barbers Point was diverted from a training mission and a 45-foot Response Boat-Medium boatcrew from Coast Guard Station Honolulu was launched to search the area.

    Missing something? The Coast Guard is seeking the public’s help identifying the owner of an unmanned green kayak found on the rocks in the vicinity of Maliko Gulch, Maui, Friday. Anyone with information that may help identify the owner of the kayak is asked to contact Sector Honolulu at 808-842-2600. It is recommended owners of watersports equipment write their name and phone number on their gear. The Coast Guard offers free "If Found" decals to be placed in a visible location on small, human-powered watercraft through the Operation Paddle Smart program.

    Happy Aloha Friday! January is designated as National Mentoring Month! A great mentor is someone who is an experienced and trusted advisor. Let's take a look at one of our service's many historic mentors; Oliver Berry. Chief Machinist’s Mate Berry became one of the world’s first helicopter maintenance specialists. A distinguished expert mechanic on original Coast Guard aircraft including land and seaplanes as well as helicopters, he was lead instructor at the very first U.S. military helicopter training unit, the Rotary Wing Development Unit, which was established at Elizabeth City, North Carolina, in June 1946. He was also prominent in the development of the first rescue hoist and was an instrumental part in pioneering the use of the helicopter for search and rescue after World War II. He contributed significantly to a 1946 world renowned rescue of airliner crash victims in Newfoundland which required the rapid dismantling, air transport and reassembly of Coast Guard helicopters. D14's first Fast Response Cutter is named after Oliver Berry and we are proud to have him recognized and honored in our fleet. (U.S. Coast Guard photo by Lt. j.g.

    A little help at sea... The Coast Guard, and a good Samaritan assisted a 62-year old Australian mariner in his homemade sailing vessel three and a half miles west of the Keehi Harbor, Maui, Sunday. A 45-foot Response Boat-Medium boatcrew from Coast Guard Station Maui safely towed the 30-foot sailing vessel Kehaar Darwin to Sugar Beach, Maui. Customs and Border Protection personnel will interview the mariner before he resumes his voyage. “Being disoriented while at sea in a vessel with no communication capabilities aboard can be deadly if not handled quickly,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Jacob Schlereth, a boarding officer and engineer at Station Maui. “We commend the good Samaritan for recognizing the complications and contacting the proper authorities to initiate a rescue.” For more information on this case visit: goo.gl/GhDjEy U.S. Coast Guard

    Please help us in wishing our very own local Coast Guard SPAR Genevieve "Jenny" Anderson a very happy 100th birthday!! She served with the SPARS for two years from 1942 to 1944, standing recruiting duty in Kansas City, Mo., and eventually transferred to Columbus, Ohio. Crewmembers from Coast Guard Station Kauai visited Jenny during a birthday celebration recently held at the Kauai Veteran's Center where she was presented a certificate and a station coin. She is the oldest living female veteran on Kauai. However, being 100-years-old doesn't hold Jenny back! She wanted to get underway with the crew and recently went for a ride in Nawiliwili Harbor in a 45-foot Response Boat-Medium with the Station Kauai crew. Much to her delight, Jenny was able to drive the boat for a bit as well (supervised, of course). The Women’s Reserve of the Coast Guard, or the SPARs, was established on Nov. 23, 1942, to aid with the release of men to afloat or other duties. By war’s end, more than 10,000 had served on active duty. The name SPARs is an acronym of the Coast Guard’s slogan: “Semper Paratus — Always Ready”. Hauʻoli Lā Hānau, Jenny and mahalo for your service!

    The U.S. Coast Guard is seeking input from mariners for a study of navigation requirements in the Pacific Seacoast System. The Waterways Analysis and Management System study will review the short range Aids to Navigation system that covers American waterways from the Canadian border to the Mexican border and around Alaska, Hawaii and all U.S. territories throughout the Pacific. Interested mariners and maritime stakeholders can provide input by taking the survey at: <a href="https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PacSeacoastWAMS" target="_blank">https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PacSeacoastWAMS</a> The survey will be available until March 31, 2018. In addition to the survey input, the system-wide study will cover international requirements, environmental concerns, user capabilities, available technology and available resources. The study is part of the U.S. Coast Guard’s Future of Navigation initiative, the multi-year effort to analyze, optimize and modernize the navigation systems that safely guide millions of mariners and trillions of trade into U.S. ports. “This WAMS study will help us to tailor our Aids to Navigation levels of service to better meet the needs of mariners across the Pacific Seacoast System,” said Cmdr. Justin Kimura, the chief of the Navigation Technology and Risk Management Division in the Coast Guard Office of Navigation Systems. Managed by the U.S. Coast Guard Office of Navigation Systems and maintained by Coast Guard buoy tenders and ATON teams around the nation, Aids to Navigation help mariners to determine their position, chart a safe course and steer clear of hazards.

    Mele &#39;early&#39; Kalikimaka! Sharing a little teaser from our fun annual event yesterday. Crewmembers from Oahu based Coast Guard units delivered Christmas presents to approximately 230 children at Prince Jonah Kuhio Elementary School, a Honolulu school that draws from an underprivileged area of the island, Thursday. Coast Guard members took wish lists written by the children and collected by their teachers, purchased gifts and wrapped them. The crew then delivered the gifts to the school and attended a presentation by the children, who sang and performed holiday-themed karaoke for their families and the Coast Guard. Stay tuned until Christmas Day when we share video of the event! (U.S. Coast Guard photos) Kuhio Elementary School MSST Honolulu U.S. Coast Guard

    Honoring the fallen, honoring family... Lt. Duane Zitta, a command duty officer at the Coast Guard 14th District Joint Rescue Coordination Center on Oahu, participated in a wreath laying ceremony with his family during a Wreaths Across America ceremony held at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, Honolulu, Dec. 16, 2017. What made this event even more special was the fact that one of the wreaths was for a member of Zitta&#39;s own family. Pfc. Victor Zitta, 18th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, and Zitta&#39;s great uncle on his father&#39;s side, was killed in action during the Battle of Saipan in WWII. "It&#39;s a blessing to be here and be a part of this wonderful event," said Zitta. "What an opportunity we have to be stationed here in Hawaii, coincidentally where my great uncle is buried. It&#39;s an awesome opportunity to bring my family to honor him and the sacrifice that he gave for his country." The Battle of Saipan was a battle of the Pacific campaign of World War II, fought on the island of Saipan in the Mariana Islands from June 15 to July 9, 1944. Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, ceremonies take place at Arlington National Cemetery as well as over 1,200 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad.

     History of the Fourteenth District

    Revenue Cutter LogoThe Revenue Cutter Lawrence sailed into Honolulu Harbor Sept. 4, 1849, escorted by Native Hawaiians in outrigger canoes. This marked the beginning of the U. S. Coast Guard presence in the Pacific. For the next 90 years, cutters from the West Coast routinely plied Hawaii’s waters on patrols. In 1939, the Fourteenth Coast Guard District was established ashore in Honolulu with 230 personnel.

    Today, more than 1,150 active duty, 150 reserve, 80 civilian, and 400 Auxiliary men and women make up the Fourteenth District, which boasts the Coast Guard’s largest area of responsibility. The district covers more than 12.2 million square miles of land and sea, with units on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, the Big Island, and in American Samoa, Saipan, Guam, Singapore and Japan.

    The Fourteenth District’s boundaries of responsibility stretch from the Hawaiian Islands and across most of the Central and Western Pacific. The District Commander oversees 25 operational units ashore and afloat throughout the Pacific, which regularly perform missions in maritime safety, protection of natural resources, maritime security, homeland security, and national defense. In 1939, the Fourteenth District was comprised of one 327-foot cutter, two 125-foot patrol boats, two buoy tenders, five small boats and 64 aids to navigation. Today, the district boasts three 225-foot buoy tenders, four 110-foot patrol boats, two 87-foot coastal patrol boats, four small boat stations, two sector commands, an air station, a Far East command, five detachments and over 400 aids to navigation.
