Commander Eric Gleason has taken over as Commanding Officer of Coast Guard Air Station Houston in a recent ceremony.Â He succeeds Cmdr. Christopher Moss. The Commander of the Eighth Coast Guard District, Rear Adm. Roy Nash, presided over the ceremony.
Gleason, a 1992 Coast Guard Academy graduate, arrives in Houston from Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod, where he was the operations officer. During his time at Cape Cod, he was designated as an MH-60J and MH-60T aircraft commander, and assisted in directing Coast Guard aviation operations off the New England coast.
â€œEach new duty station comes with new possibilities,â€ said Gleason. â€œIâ€™m looking forward to the next two years and the challenges ahead in the Gulf region. Guarding the Gulf Coast is an enormous responsibility, and we will be ready to respond when the call comes,â€ he said.
