Moore, a native of Laramie, Wyo., is retiring after 24 years of service in the Coast Guard. Moore’s assignments include numerous afloat and ashore tours. He has served in Kodiak since 2009 when the base was an integrated support command and saw the unit through the modernization process to consolidate the Kodiak-based units that provide internal, administrative, logistics and support services to the operational Coast Guard commands in Alaska thus creating Coast Guard Base Kodiak.

Woloszynski, a native of Dearborn, Mich., is a 1989 graduate of the Coast Guard Academy. He is coming to Kodiak from Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington D.C., where he served as the program manager of the Nationwide Automatic Identification System project within the CG-9 Acquisition Directorate. His duties included management and oversight for the design, development, testing and deployment of NAIS assets used to track commercial vessels in order to enhance the nation’s maritime safety and security.

His previous units include Civil Engineering Unit Miami, Maintenance and Logistics Command Pacific in Alameda, Calif., Integrated Support Command Seattle, Civil Engineering Unit Juneau, Alaska, Loran Station Marcus Island, Japan, and the Coast Guard Cutter Bear based out of Portsmouth, Va.

He holds a Master of Science degree in civil engineering from the University of Illinois, a Master of Business Administration degree from St. Mary’s College of California, and a Master of Science in national resource strategy from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces. He is a licensed professional engineer in the state of Alaska and a DHS certified level III acquisition professional.

Woloszynski's personal awards include the three Meritorious Service Medals, two Coast Guard Commendation Medals, two Achievement Medals and a Commandant's Letter of Commendation.

Coast Guard Base Kodiak is one of 13 newly established bases under the nationwide reorganization. The combining of these units did not constitute the loss or addition of any personnel to or from Kodiak. For more about the Coast Guard's modernization program please click here

Crabbers get a boost in bairdi Tanner quotas

LAINE WELCH Image via Wikipedia FISHERIES Published: November 7th, 2009 10:10 PM Last Modified: November 7th, 2009 10:12 PM KODIAK -- Kodiak and Alaska Peninsula crabbers got some good news last week -- bigger catch quotas for bairdi Tanner crab, a mid-January fishery important to local economies. Bairdi are the larger cousins of the better-known opilio Tanners, or snow crab. The bairdi boost stems from a big pulse of new crab recruits that biologists have been tracking for years. "That is what's fueling the increase in the harvest this year. We're just getting the very beginning of that year class," said.........

Danish commandos 'monitoring hippies' on Arctic offshore rig #artcticloons

Image by Steve Rhodes via Flickr Alaska Dispatch | May 31, 2011 Armed Danish commandos have (possibly) been summoned to monitor Earth-loving "hippies" clinging to the underbelly of an Arctic deepwater oil rig  off the coast of Greenland , sources say. The environmental non-governmental group  Greenpeace  has published  statements and  video  showing its activists aboard two ships that are attempting to "interfere" with oil exploration going on in the Davis Strait, 100 miles west of Greenland. This business has in turn prompted the Kingdom of Denmark to launch two ships and a few helicopters to monitor the Greenpeace interference. The  Leiv Eriksson  is the source of all this Arctic bait and switch. British oil company  Cairn Energy  is attempting to drill four wells at depths of at least 5,000 feet this summer in "iceberg-strewn sea" with the 53,000-ton offshore oil rig, which has made its way to Arctic waters after a month of failed attempts by Green
