Spent 22 years in the often forgotten service, USCG. Why people think we aren’t a branch of the military baffles me but I don’t get offended as many of my fellow Coasties do. They take life way too seriously.

 

Started out as an E-1 in 1976, made Chief @ 8 years, CWO @ 12 years and went CWO3 to O-3 for the last three years. I am your basic crusty old Mustang SOB who loved irritating officers. Being a Mustang makes one a ‘Teflon Don’… no one messes with you.

 

Served five years overseas, Bahamas, Italy, Spain (2 years) and Johnston Atoll (800 miles SW of Honolulu). Was the Commanding Officer of Johnston Atoll and decommissioned the unit. Was in charge of all electronic and radio schools for the CG. Sent to Washington DC as an LT where I was in charge of 15,500 enlisted folks and 2,500 CWOs. Knew my career had ended at DC because I didn’t play well at recess with senior officers.

Hey, guys.

 

Just watched a program on Fox where they interviewed a group of extremely seriously injured troops. Quatruple amputees, triple amputees, a man with 85% burns.

 

Their spirit to survive, to live a good live was just incredible.

 

Their asking for our support so specialized homes can be built for them. If it's in capacity to help, please consider donating to:

On this special day, let's keep our wounded in mind.

Wally, yes sir, that was me. But I only closed down the Coast Guard assets. The main base was still doing their duty when I left. It was one of the BEST duty stations I ever had. Why? because it's good to be the King! ;)

USAF Security Police, 1974-86, SAC Nuke-Puke, MAC, NKP-Thailand, too many TDYs to Thule, Lakenheath, Ramstein and Embassy flights. Good times except for the several "congressional junkets" with the "elite", sometimes throwing someone out over a large body of water is entirely justified. (rhetorically speaking of course)
