KODIAK, Alaska — A Maine native serving in the U.S. Coast Guard in Juneau has earned one of the service’s top honors.
Lt. Nicole Auth is the Coast Guard’s Elite Female Athlete of the Year.
The Lamoine, Maine, native was the acting bosun and top bow woman for the U.S. women’s sailing team, which won the bronze medal at last summer’s Military World Games. She also was honored for her community service while stationed in Hawaii.
She is now assigned to the 17th District prevention division in Juneau.
