Honor. Respect. Devotion to duty. For Coast Guard members, these are more than just simple words, they are core values. As Chief Petty Officer Travis Cutler advanced through the ranks, these words shaped his daily actions and became a way of life. Cutler’s embodiment of the Coast Guard’s core values, strength of character and leadership abilities have earned him the title of Coast Guard Enlisted Person of the Year. As a result of this selection, Cutler was meritoriously advanced to chief petty officer in a ceremony held today in Washington, D.C.
