On December 9, 2011, West Park’s very own Patrick White received a letter of commendation for outstanding performance of duty while assigned to Coast Guard State Cape Cod Canal in Sandwich, Massachusetts. During this time, he was an integral part of the Deck Department and an invaluable assistant to the Executive Petty Officer. He was instrumental in the training of his fellow shipmates, specifically two Coast Guard Academy cadets.
His professionalism and maturity were also lauded following a tour that he provided to a Flotilla 6-4 member and their family. White also sought out additional responsibilities by assisting the XPO for a two-week period, reestablished the unit’s Personnel Security Program and built 45 active and reserve security files which led to a near perfect examination. Like he did here in West Park, White selflessly dedicated his time to give back to the community, volunteering as an assistant baseball coach at a local high school.
White’s dedication to the crew and to the unit’s many missions illustrated fine character thus emulating exemplary core values of honor, respect and devotion to duty.
Because of this meritorious service, it is with extreme pleasure that I ask all of West Park to join me in congratulating our very own SN Patrick S. White of the United States Coast Guard on receiving the Commandant’s Letter of Commendation Ribbon Bar! If you know of more “good news coming from West Park”, please send it to me. I represent you and appreciate your input into the continued success of our beloved city. I can be reached at (954) 889-4164 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
