New USCG chief in Puerto Rico

Posted on by in

U.S. Coast Guard Sector San Juan has received a new commander for Coast Guard forces in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Capt. Robert W. Warren assumed command of Sector San Juan. Meanwhile, Capt. Drew W. Pearson, Sector San Juan’s outgoing commander, retired from the Coast Guard after 30 years of service. He is moving to North Carolina to become director for emergency management for Dare County.

Most recently, Capt. Warren completed a tour at the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s Strategic Plans and Policy Directorate in the Pentagon, where he supported and represented the chairman on maritime homeland defense strategy and policy issues.

Sector San Juan covers a 1.3 million-square-mile region that encompasses 18 countries in the eastern Caribbean.
