New Coast Guard Commander in Northern New England

The Coast Guard has a new commander overseeing operations in northern New England.

Captain Brian Gilda assumed command of the region in a change-of-command ceremony Tuesday in Portland, Maine.

Gilda has served as deputy commander for the past two years and replaces Captain Christopher Roberge, who is retiring after 28 years of service.

The northern New England sector includes Maine, New Hampshire and all of Lake Champlain, which is located within Vermont and New York. The area has more than 5,000 miles of coastline and more than 1,100 Coast Guard personnel.
