Wednesday marked Admiral Thad Allen's final day in a Coast Guard uniform. The National Incident Commander, who is in charge of the oil spill response, will now become a civilian employee of the Department of Homeland Security.

He stepped down as Coast Guard commandant in May but kept his admiral rank through the end of June.
