Training Center Yorktown Ombudsman: Doug Guseilo
Hello! My name is Doug Guseilo and I am a retired Coast Guardsman. I thoroughly enjoyed my time serving the country and my fellow shipmates while on active duty. My wife is currently serving at Coast Guard Training Center Yorktown. She and I met a few years ago when we both deployed to Louisiana for the Deep Water Horizon oil spill response. We have been stationed in California, Florida, and now Virginia.
I originally joined the Coast Guard to help people in any way the government directed. Currently, I find myself still to have that same sense of public service: to serve the families of Training Center Yorktown as your Ombudsman.
You may contact me at (440) 552-4101; or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
