Mark retired from Active Duty in 2020 with 25+ years of service to our U.S. Coast Guard. He is extremely passionate as to military non-profit organizations, as he has served as our former President of the CWOA (2018-2020), former President of the CPOA (Petaluma Chapter 2007-08) and Coast Guard Advisor to the Board of Directors of the Sea Service Family Foundation (SSFF)(2019-20). Mark is a CWOA Lifetime Member (member in good standing since January 2009), current Vice President of the Open Country Chapter (2022 - present), Chairman of the Long Range Planning Committee, committee member of the Retired Affairs Policy Committee.
He has formerly served as Chairman to the 100 Anniversary Committee (2021-22), Long Range Planning Committee (2022-23), Communications Committee (2020-21) and was a member of several other committees since his time of President ended in 2020. Beyond the CWOA, he is currently the SSFF Chief Advocacy Officer, a Kentucky Colonel and active member of the Cpl Chris S. Ebert Marine Corps League Detachment #1221 in Forest City, NC.
The roles of our CWOA Vice President of Retired Affairs has been limited to advising the CWOA BOD of retired issues, while also communicating with our retired CWOA members. While Mark feels those are still very important to our Association, he also believes a renewed emphasis of the CWOA VP of Retired Affairs (Chairman of the Retired Policy Committee) should be more engaging with legislative actions on Capital Hill on behave of our retired members, along with his fellow Board of Directors members (VP of Active Duty Affairs & VP of Reserve Affairs) as to expand our organization influence in Congress.
