BM2 s cott l ee, s tation h onolulu, selected as 14th d istrict Reserve e nlisted p erson of the Year The 14th District's Reserve Enlisted Person of the Year, Petty Officer 2nd Class Scott Lee, has been proudly serving in the Reserve since June 2004. As a qualified crewman and coxswain on both the RB-S I and the RB-S II, his leadership and experience were instrumental in qualifying four other reservists as smallboat crewmembers, exponentially improving Station Honolulu's operational readiness and ability to respond to search and rescue and law enforcement missions. In November, Lee responded as coxswain to a report of three people in the water near Honolulu Airport's Reef Runway. He was able to quickly maneuver his RB-S, navigating through shallow waters and ensuring the safety of the persons on board the response boat. Outside of the unit, Lee was able to save a life during a service call in his civilian job on Jun. 9, 2016. While at working a customer's home for the local telecom company, the homeowner went into cardiac arrest. Lee alerted 911, began CPR and kept the man alive until emergency responders arrived on scene. His quick, life-saving actions that day earned him the Honolulu Fire Department Certificate of Commendation, and a Certificate of Recognition by the City and County of Honolulu. Lee is an active member of both the Coast Guard and civilian community and in both, he demonstrates the utmost devotion to duty and service to others. — Compiled by Cadet 1/c Sydney Vignola BM2 Scott l ee, receives a battle ax from MCPO Ed l ewis, 14th d istrict Command Master Chief, during the Regional Enlisted Person of the Year Recognition d inner, April 5.
