Sherman was my first tour of duty and where I learned ship repair and maintenance from Pete Mason, Jim Meyer (my two EOs) and Mike Dempsey (aux chief) among so many other great mentors. Great morale and lots of fun. Following Sherman, I served 4 years as patrol boat type desk in Alameda, then finished my Coast Guard years as EO of the Valiant in Galveston, TX.
Since then I've worked and lived in Ohio, California, Washington DC area and finally settled just north of Boston (where I grew up). I currently work for IBM assisting software sellers worldwide as the oil and gas industry leader selling Maximo enterprise asset management software (maintenance management software). Every day, I still rely on the foundational knowledge and sound maintenance practices I gained during my two years on the mighty Sherman.
