Happy birthday everyone.
Coast Guard patrol boat in Vietnam. Five and seven day patrols at sea in all weather conditions were common. The cutter carried a crew of thirteen plus a Vietnamese interpreter which made for very cramped quarters.
Happy Birthday USCG.
Thanks for your service, CD.
I slept in TANEY berthing while the HAMILTON was in the yards in Baltimore. Taney was a training ship for steam propulsion plants in Baltimore, wasn’t it? I much later helped deliver BIBB (WHEC-31) out of New Bedford, MA to the salvage company as part of the post-decom crew. Then on to CHASE.
1971-1991 active duty USCG
1991-pres. contractor with USCGA
Happy Birthday, The Coast Guard is great, it’s a shame they, like NASA, are the kings of affirmative action, I am so sick of how the government sees everyone as a hyphen!
You're saying they're more so than other government entities?
We miss you FRiend.
Best 4 years of my youth.
Yes, enjoyed Tonk and his later work with the CG Auxiliary in Oregon.
Ha! Probably slept in the same bunk, though 20 years later! My time was in the mid-1960's out of Alameda, CA.
I'm glad that at least one of the 327 ft. cutters got saved. A grand relic of the age of steam - trains and ships.
Thanks Mister Bowman!
