Coast Guard R&D head to retire

Capt. Alan Arsenault, commanding officer of the Coast Guard Research and Development Center, announced his retirement Thursday after 26 years of active duty service. He plans to retire June 27 during the center's change of command ceremony.

"This has been a great culminating tour to conclude my Coast Guard service," Arsenault said. "For my family and me, the Coast Guard has been an exciting and exceptional experience. It will be difficult for me to hang up my uniform that has grown a part of me, but I look forward to my next chapter in life as I start a new career."

Arsenault holds a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering and a commission from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and a master's degree in electrical engineering from the University of New Hampshire. He is a Department of Homeland Security Level III certified program manager and a certified project management professional with the Project Management Institute. He was awarded five Coast Guard Meritorious Service Medal awards, two Coast Guard Commendation Medal awards and one Coast Guard Achievement Medal award.
