The new commander of the U.S. Coast Guard’s 17th District says ratification of the Law of the Sea Treaty remains a top Coast Guard priority. Rear Admiral Thomas Ostebo took over for Rear Admiral Christopher Colvin Thursday at a change of command ceremony on the pier at Coast Guard Station Juneau.

As Casey Kelly reports, Ostebo says he’ll continue many initiatives from Colvin’s tenure, including a focus on Arctic issues.
