On June 16, the U.S. Coast Guard Station on South Padre Island hosted a Change of Command Ceremony in which Lt. Mickey Lalor, who assumed responsibility of command in July 2009, released command of the station to Lt. Joshua Sagers.
Lt. Sagers is a native of New Orleans, LA and enlisted in the United States Coast Guard in 1999. After completing recruit training in Cape May, NJ, he attended Quatermaster “A” School in Yorktown, VA and was assigned to CGC CUSHING (1321) homeported in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 2000, then USCG Group Galveston, TX in 2002.
