Thirteenth Coast Guard District selects Reserve Enlisted Person of the Year

SEATTLE – The Thirteenth Coast Guard District has selected Petty Officer Trisha Castrillo as the 2007 Reserve Enlisted Person of the Year (EPOY).

As an administrative petty officer for Coast Guard reserve members assigned to Station Grays Harbor, Castrillo developed a reserve boat training and qualification program.

Castrillo also helped maintain the welfare of the local Coast Guard housing community. She volunteered to maintain the Coast Guard housing area playground and participated in an annual toy drive that provided gifts to over 30 area children.

The EPOY Program is designed to recognize exemplary men and women from the active and reserve enlisted work force. Only those enlisted personnel who demonstrated sustained exceptional standards of proficiency and conduct, and whose military appearance and bearing consistently reflected Coast Guard’s core values of honor, respect, and devotion to duty.
