Shipmate of the Week – LCDR Anthony Owens

The standard picture of a military leader is the person leading the charge, directing the battlefield, commanding the ship, and making the decisions. A leader is ever-present and sets the tone for his or her unit. But a leader doesn’t have to be at that unit to have an impact. Throughout his military career, first as an enlisted aviator in the Navy and later as a Coast Guard judge advocate, retired Lt. Cmdr. Anthony R. Owens always strived for the best. If it was worth doing, it was worth giving his all.
