“MK2 James Hardey is an outstanding example of adherence to the Coast Guard’s Core Value of devotion to duty and his drive and determination for professional development is an outstanding example of what can be accomplished to other reserve members,” notes ITC James Krise, the station’s Senior Enlisted Reserve Advisor.

“During the two years that Hardey has been a reservist at Station Washington he has graduated from MK-A School, advanced twice, and obtained and maintained his boat crew and boarding team member competencies. In addition, he was recognized for his volunteer efforts and promotion of the USCG as a career.”

Krise also pointed out that Hardley graduated from Virginia Military Institute (VMI) with a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Mathematics and is in the process of applying for Officers Candidate School.
