A Coast Guard officer assigned to the Coast Guard Cutter Hickory (WLB-212) died at the Coast Guard buoy yard in Homer, Alaska, Thursday.

Chief Warrant Officer, Michael Kozloski, was injured by a crane while working in the buoy yard. Local emergency medical services personnel performed CPR and transported him to South Peninsula Hospital where he was pronounced deceased. Kozloski was a 35-year-old, from Mahopac, New York.

Rear Adm. Matthew T. Bell Jr., Coast Guard 17th District commander, said “Chief Warrant Officer Kozloski faithfully served his country for over 17 years and we are forever grateful for his steadfast devotion to duty and sacrifices.”
