Coast Guard Sector Portland welcomes new commander
PORTLAND, Ore. – Captain Frederick G. Myer assumed command of Coast Guard Sector Portland, Ore., today. He relieved Commander Russ Proctor, who will resume his assignment as Sector Deputy Commander.

Steeped in formal military tradition, the Change of Command ceremony represents a transfer of total responsibility, authority and accountability from one officer to another, before an assembly of the command’s crew, to communicate the continuity of command.

As Sector Commander, Captain Myer assumes the responsibilities of Captain of the Port, Federal Maritime Security Coordinator, Officer in Charge of Marine Inspection and Federal On-Scene Coordinator.

Captain Myer comes to Sector Portland from Sector Boston, where he served as the Deputy Sector Commander. Prior to Sector Boston, his many tours included the Thirteenth District in Seattle, the Coast Guard Cutter Storis in Kodiak, Alaska, the Marine Inspection Office in New York, Coast Guard Cutters Resolute and Alert in Astoria, Ore., Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and Group/ Air Station Port Angeles, Wash.

Captain Myer is originally from Beverly, Mass. He graduated from the Coast Guard Academy in 1986 with a degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. Additionally, he has earned an MBA from Strayer University in Woodbridge, VA.

Captain Myer and his wife Lisa Annette Myer from Tacoma, Wash., are excited to be back in the Northwest.
