U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Eighth Eastern Region Welcome to the "Who we are" page of our website. This page will show the members of 8th Eastern doing what they do best, Recreational Boating Safety. If you have a story or a great photos of you or a favorite Auxie in action contact the webmaster at the link below.

We will attempt to show every aspect of our work. If we don't get enough donations we will see what the webmaster can find, like shots of his OPFAC. The content here hopefully will be ever-changing since we won't be able to save everything due to space constraints.

Scott Farr of Flotilla 11 04 is a unique young man.  Most of our members who have Coast Guard experience are retired and do Auxiliary work using their Active Duty experience.  Scott became an Auxiliarist first and at one time was the youngest Flotilla Commander in the district.  He is a an Instructor and is Crew Qualified.   At the present time he is Ensign Scott Farr serving in the Coast Guard sfarr.jpg (36923 bytes)

A March 2008 update:

After graduating from Officer Candidate School in 2004, Scott was
assigned to the USCG Ceremonial Honor Guard where he conducted Coast
Guard funerals at Arlington National Cemetery, Joint Service honor
ceremonies at the Pentagon, White House and Tomb of the Unknowns, and
participated in Parades and traveled across the country for various
public affairs missions.

June 2006, LTJG Scott Farr reported to USCG Station Seattle as the
Executive Officer, where he is responsible for the Station's
organization, including daily work, training, good order/discipline,
review & approval of purchase requests, admin for 80+ active duty and
reserve members & fiscal oversight of 2 departments.  He is also a
qualified tactical crewman on the 41'UTB and 25' Defender Class boats
and qualified Maritime Law Enforcement Boarding Officer.

Scott is still a member of Flotilla 11-05, but more importantly, he
married his college sweetheart and in September of 2007 became the
father of a bouncing baby boy.
