Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles names Enlisted Person of the Year and Quarter

Coast Guard Air Station Port AngelesThe Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles announced the selection of AMT 2 Andrew Moravec as Enlisted Person of the Year for 2012. Petty Officer Moravec was selected by the Chief Petty Officers of the Air Station from a list of highly qualified nominees. These nominees have demonstrated outstanding performance of duty throughout the entire year. Nominations are open to Air Station  personnel E6 and below.

As Flight Mechanic Instructor, Petty Officer Moravec displayed superior technical aptitude, judgement, and maturity while holding the entire aircrew to standards and motivated them to excel. He is the shipmate that makes a difference every day, ensuring we are training our crews, putting safe aircraft in the air and completing our missions. Most notably, Petty Officer Moravec is just completing his first tour in aviation.

When not at work, Petty Officer Moravec presents a positive Coast Guard image to our communities. This last year he volunteered to coach both the high school  LaCrosse team and the 6th grade YMCA youth boys basketball team. Petty Officer Moravec also volunteered at a local homeless shelter during the  holidays to serve meals. His many efforts were recognized by the Free Masons of Washington when he was named Coast Guard Military Person of the Year for 2012 and by the Coast Guard where he received the Outstanding Military Service Medal.

Petty Officer Moravec is a student of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and recently received his Associate Of Science degree in Professional Areonatics.

Seaman Brittny Thompson has been selected as the Enlisted Person of the Quarter for the fourth quarter of 2012 by the Chief Petty Officers of Coast Guard Air Station Port Angeles. Seaman Thompson works in the Damage Control Shop and has had a phenomenal quarter at Air Station Port Angeles. At the beginning of October she was given the responsibility  to supervise  several other TAD E-3s. Under her supervision the team was able to meet all expectations and deadlines. Among the many projects Seaman Thompson’s crew completed were servicing safety equipment throughout the base, replacing runway markings to improve aviation safety, and completing a major rehab of the Chiefs Mess 32 Lounge Galley.

In addition to achieving results at work, Seaman Thompson volunteers at the Port Angeles Police Department where she works hand in hand with officers of the community preparing educational information about sex offenders, domestic violence, and suicide prevention programs.
