“Our Reserve Force is incredibly diverse, and not just in terms of race, gender, ethnicity or specialty; Coast Guard Reservists are also diverse in what they do outside their Coast Guard lives and in terms of where they make their homes,” said Rear Adm. Bill Kelly, commander of the Coast Guard Personnel Service Center. “We are excited that Twitter offers us another way to make sure we keep our Reserve shipmates informed and inside the lifelines when it comes to news that’s important to them as we strive to provide the finest Service to our Nation.”
