2016 Saratoga Fellow
Paul Puddington, Ensign, United States Coast Guard
Hometown: Castorland, New York
College: The United States Coast Guard Academy
Degree: B.S. Civil Engineering
Paul is a 2016 graduate of the United States Coast Guard Academy where he majored in civil engineering and played Varsity Football all four years. He was the recipient of the Moles Student Award for outstanding work in his major and was a two-time selection to the New England Football Conference All-Academic team.
Paul’s desire is to develop his gifts and talents and to take advantage of every opportunity to grow and learn. Paul believes the Saratoga Fellowship Program will help him establish a network across the five branches of the military that will have a significant impact on his personal growth and move him in a direction of becoming a successful leader of major military operations. His future plans include graduate school in a leadership or government related field.
In August, Paul will be reporting to Alameda, California as a Deck Watch Officer on the USCGC STRATTON.
