Our Deck Plate Leader of the week is Thomas Frisbie, officer in charge, Station Gulfport!
Senior Chief Frisbie continually does what is right and holds his people to their best – even through severe weather events, a [lapse in appropriations], and pandemic emergencies. He respects everyone by treating each person and mission with the utmost care. He has built partnerships with the local DEA and conducted joint operations with their unit to ensure they are a force multiplier for the area. His devotion to duty is exemplary by supporting military outload operations – as one boat unit – while using state partnerships for the success of the mission.
Frisbie participates in all Mess functions and offers a plethora of ideas, which draws participation from others while supporting the overall mission of the Chief’s Mess. He organizes an annual flag football event to raise camaraderie across U.S. Coast Guard Sector Mobile and U.S. Coast Guard Sector New Orleans units, and often volunteers to assist initiatives and events to make each one more impactful for everyone involved.
He continuously pushes his people to grow and become greater versions of themselves through all means. He prides himself when his people success – such as when members obtain OIC certifications, start TA school programs, apply for mariner credentials, or advance to a higher rank.
You are a great example to all. Thank you for all you do.
