Coast Guard Maritime Intelligence Fusion Center Pacific holds change-of-command

ALAMEDA, Calif. – The Coast Guard Maritime Intelligence Fusion Center Pacific (MIFC PAC) held a change-of-command ceremony Friday at Coast Guard Base Alameda.

Capt. Michael Guldin relieved Capt. Ronald Pailliotet during the ceremony, which was presided over by Vice Adm. Linda L. Fagan, commander of the Coast Guard’s Pacific Area.

Guldin previously served at the National Intelligence University as a Strategic Intelligence Research Fellow, and his immediate previous assignment was at the Coast Guard Cryptologic Group.

Following the change-of-command ceremony, Pailliotet retired after 25 years of service.

The change of command ceremony is a time-honored tradition and formal ritual conducted before the assembled company of a command to confirm to the men and women of the unit that the authority of command is maintained. The ceremony is a transfer of total responsibility, authority and accountability from one individual to another.

Headquartered in Alameda, MIFC PAC is responsible for providing tactical and operational intelligence to all Coast Guard Pacific Area units within a 74 million square mile area of responsibility.
