Seaman Dylan Thompson , Commander Matt Thompson and Seaman Apprentice Ryan Thompson
Commander Matt Thompson enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard in 1992 and became a commissioned officer in 1998. He’s currently Chief of Response Operations for Coast Guard Sector San Francisco, an active and widespread region spanning from the San Luis Obispo County line north to the Mendocino County line, including Monterey Bay, San Francisco Bay, and inland Delta waterways.
Growing up as Coast Guard “brats,” Seaman Dylan Thompson and Seaman Apprentice Ryan Thompson, both graduates of College Park High School, always wanted to follow their father’s footsteps and serve in the Coast Guard. They’ve always been fascinated with the service’s Maritime Safety and Security missions, especially Search and Rescue and Law Enforcement.
After completing Coast Guard boot camp in June 2015, Dylan was assigned to Coast Guard Boat Station Rio Vista in Rio Vista, California.
After graduating high school in June of this year, Ryan continued the family tradition. He successfully completed Coast Guard boot camp in August 2016, and was assigned to a 270 ft. patrol cutter homeported in Portsmouth, Virginia.
