[related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”curated” curated_ids=”6202833,6170247,6157344″]“I have no doubt that Carrier Strike Group 9 will answer any tasking, respond to any crisis or meet any foe and perform in a manner that will bring honor to our navy and nation,” said Dwyer while speaking to the officers and sailors of CSG 9. “We exist to make all assigned units successful, to fight on their behalf for resources and every training opportunity, in order to make them the most capable fighting force on the planet, and each of you lived up to that challenge.” Vice Adm. John D. Alexander, commander of the U.S. 3rd Fleet, served as presiding officer and guest speaker for the ceremony. “It takes a person willing to lead and take on the most challenging tasks to successfully command a carrier strike group, and Dan was just that person,” said Alexander. “The ships and units under his command did nothing short of excel.” Dwyer and Baker then read their orders, in keeping with Navy tradition, officially changing command. Dwyer served as CCSG 9 since June 2018. Under his leadership, Dwyer ensured the execution of CSG 9’s maintenance, training, qualifications, operations and fleet obligations for Theodore Roosevelt, USS Bunker Hill (CG 52), USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000), six guided missile destroyers of Destroyer Squadron 23, and 80 aircraft of Carrier Air Wing 11. Dwyer also served as the senior U.S. Navy representative for exercise Rim of the Pacific, Southern California, and as the exercise director for Valiant Shield 2018. Most recently, he oversaw the Navy’s extremely successful participation in exercise Northern Edge off the coast of Alaska furthering strategic communication efforts and preparing joint forces to respond to crises in the Indo-Pacific. — U.S. Navy School district office to be named in Niel Tam’s memory At its recent[cq comment=”June 11″] public meeting, the Board of Education for the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) approved a resolution to name the district office after Nielsen Tam, a former Board of Education member who died in 2015. The recipient of master’s degrees in special education and school administration, Tam dedicated his 40-year career to AUSD schools, students and employees. Early in his career, he worked as a special education teacher and union grievance officer. In the 1990s, he served as an assistant principal at Wood Middle School. After vociferous community debate about what was felt to be an under-representation of people of color in school leadership roles, he became the district’s first Chinese-American principal when he was hired to lead Miller Elementary School in 1997. He became the principal of Washington (now Maya Lin) Elementary School in 2006. Tam was elected to the Board of Education in 2008, re-elected in 2012 and served as school board president in 2013. — AUSD Animal shelter to open satellite adoption location Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) is opening a 2,000-square-foot auxiliary adoption store in South Shore Center shopping mall.
