  • Yesterday was a big day at Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City. VADM Vivien Crea held her retirement ceremony including the passing on of a great Coast Guard tradition, the title of Ancient Albatross. In the Change of Watch ceremony, she handed off the position as the longest serving Coast Guard aviator on active duty to RADM Gary Blore, the Thirteenth District Commander and now the 22nd Ancient Albatross. To view pictures of the ceremony, go to Coast Guard District Five’s Flickr photostream and search “Ancient.”
