"Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today applauded President Obama's intent to nominate Vice Admiral Robert J. Papp, Jr., as Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard. If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Vice Admiral Papp would relieve Admiral Thad Allen in May 2010. 'The Coast Guard plays a vital role in protecting our nation--securing America's borders, protecting our ports, and providing critical aid during disasters,' said Secretary Napolitano. 'Vice Admiral Papp's extensive knowledge of the Coast Guard's operations and broad mission will strengthen our efforts to ensure the nation's maritime security.'"
