AUP’s goal is to provide quality leadership education and opportunities to its members. To achieve that, AUX Christian Bowers and AUX Luis Meyer, both of the Remote Collaborative Unit, attended one of the Coast Guard’s premier leadership training events, attending the 29th Annual RADM Thomas Wetmore Ethics Forum at the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT.
AUP students are eligible to apply for an internship with the USCG. Mr. Christopher Us is another AUP student who worked hard and contributed to the program. In the case of Mr. Us, from AUP Virginia Tech (Flotilla 7-7 out of Fairfield, Connecticut), AUP is a way to serve his country as well as using it as a springboard towards Officer Candidacy School.
