On 17 May 2018, the US Coast Guard commissioned its newest Ensigns from Officer Candidate School in New London, CT. Amongst the class of 76 Ensigns commissioned three were alumni of AUP. ENS Jacob Marx, a 2017 graduate of the Remote Collaborative Unit; ENS Molly Sternberg, graduated in 2017 from Unit Hampton Roads; and ENS Jesse Thrift, a 2014 graduate of Unit Washington.
They are pictured below with Andrew Welch - Director of Strategic Planning, Dr. Graig Arcuri - Division Chief for AUP, and LTJG Chris Papas - Operations Branch Chief (2015 Unit William and Mary alumnus and OCS grad).
