New 2nd In Command For NC Marine Patrol

A veteran NC Marine Patrol Captain has been promoted to NC Marine Patrol Major in a pinning ceremony Monday.

In his 24 years with the North Carolina Marine Patrol Jim Kelley has worked all over coastal North Carolina.

Kelley, most recently Captain in the Wilmington Marine Patrol District, received the "Golden Oak Leaves" of a Major in the ceremony in Morehead City.

The Major is second in command in Marine Patrol ranks.

The position supervises all Marine Patrol field operations for the state.

That covers 2.7 million acres of ocean and coastal waters and 4,000 miles of shoreline in 21 counties.

Kelley replaces Major Harold Knudsen, who retired May first.
