A Special Message from Division 6 Commander Joel E. Kaplan
I want to wish you all a very happy and safe holiday season.
It’s been a pleasure serving with you in 2018, and I anticipate
another successful year for Division 6 next year. Welcome to
all newly elected and re-elected Flotilla Commanders and
This year we had two really great fourth cornerstone events:
our annual picnic and a day cruise aboard the Cutter
Narwhal. It was good to have so many of you enjoy the
camaraderie that results from socializing outside the
‘normal’ Auxiliary programs.
While fellowship is one of our cornerstones, we never forget that we are a service organization.
Semper Paratus (Always Ready) to serve is certainly true for Division 6. It takes dedication, time
commitments, and support from our families to be successful in the Auxiliary. Many volunteer their
boats, planes, and radios. We train to become certified and more skilled and knowledgeable in our
specialties and mission areas.
Thank you to all the FC’s and SO’s for an outstanding year. Thank you to everyone involved in all
the VE’s, Boat Crew, PA events, Public Education classes, Program Visitor visits, ATON patrols,
Member Trainings, Operations, Diversity, and Communications programs. And thanks to everyone
who assisted these efforts behind the scenes, in the IS, CS, HR, FN, MA, PB, and SR capacities. I
appreciate your continued support for Division 6. Our strength lies in our people and our teamwork
as a group.
My very best wishes to you and your family for health and prosperity in 2019.
