CLEVELAND — Dozens of members of the Coast Guard’s Cleveland-Area Chiefs Mess and North Coast Chapter of the Chief Petty Officers Association were on hand to recognize a Coast Guard civilian employee who was named an Honorary Chief Petty Officer in the U.S. Coast Guard at a 9th District all hands ceremony May 22, 2013 in Cleveland.
Stephen Lynch, a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel currently serving as the 9th District’s legal assistance attorney, was named an Honorary Chief Petty Officer in recognition of his tireless work to support military members and their families across the Great Lakes region.
The presentation was made by Master Chief Petty Officers Jeff Patton, Patrick O’Kelly, Jeff Waters and Paul Holling.
“I’m closing in on almost 35 years of federal service, and this is without a doubt the greatest award I’ve received,” said Lynch.
He went on to say that, when he tries to explain to others what he does, the one thing he can never fully articulate is the gratitude of the Coast Guard’s people.
“You are the most grateful, thankful people I have ever worked with.”
