My name is Mark DeBonis and I am a Boatswains mate 1st class (E-6) in the U.S. Coast Guard (Knee deep Navy). I’m currently stationed at Motor Lifeboat Station Umpqua River in Oregon. We are one of the few “Surf Stations” in the United States and we specialize in heavy weather rescue. If you’ve ever seen a Coast Guard boat crashing through the surf, that’s us. I stumbled my way on to MT while working on my Masters Degree in Organizational Management for American Military University and I’ve become a huge fan of the podcast. I ride my bike while listening to them and it helps me during work immensely. Using your advice, I’ve started to work with my Command and my peers on making our staff meetings more effective and the response has been great. This is from a room full of high D’s like me. Keep up the good work.

P.S. I just realized that joined on Christmas! I was "working" that day.
