Quigley takes over Mobile Bay command

Thursday marked a change of command for the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Mobile Bay. Lt. Commander Steven Kingsley concluded his second tour in Sturgeon Bay by turning over responsibility of the ice cutting vessel to Lt. Commander Eric Quigley. During the ceremony, Kingsley reflected on his last three years on the job and the generosity the community showed his crew, especially during the government shutdown in 2018.

After accepting his orders, Quigley told the audience he was excited to take command.

Kingsley will continue his career in the United States Coast Guard in Virginia. Based in Sturgeon Bay, the Cutter Mobile Bay does most of its work during the winter months on icebreaking missions, but also provides help with maritime law enforcement and search and rescue.
