Under the expansive skies of Guam, Petty Officer 2nd Class William Naden, a boatswain’s mate at U.S. Coast Guard Station Apra Harbor, leads by example in marine conservation and community leadership. Nurtured by the coastal beauty of his hometown, Malesso, Naden’s commitment to preserving Guam’s waters has propelled significant environmental efforts, including the Merizo Pier Cleanup, which has removed over 7,000 pounds of marine debris. His dedication was recently honored with the Tide Changer Award at the Micronesian Conservation Coalition’s Ocean Gala 2024. A respected member of the Coast Guard and an ardent environmental advocate, Naden’s story highlights the vital connection between local action and global responsibility, inspiring a collective effort to protect our oceans.
