Underway: Director of Reserve begins familiarization tour with 7th District

For nearly a week in October, Rear Adm. James Heinz and Coast Guard Reserve Force Master Chief Eric Johnson took the time to visit with reservists throughout the Coast Guard’s 7th District. From Miami to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to Sector St. Petersburg, they listened and spoke with reservists on a range of topics, which included the current budget environment and the future of the Reserve force.


Bravo Zulu to the Coast Guard Reserve for 73 years of ready and reliable response capability!

The Coast Guard Reserve was established on February 19, 1941 to serve as a ready, reliable and flexible surge force in support of Coast Guard missions. On the 73rd anniversary of this important date, it seems only fitting to say, “Bravo Zulu,” to you, the men and women who make up the Coast Guard Reserve, for recently achieving a 90% readiness rate and for all of the outstanding contributions you have provided over the years.
