About Me

I was born on a US Coast Guard Lighthouse off the rocky coast of Maine in 1950. My father a EN2 in the USCG and assistant light house keeper at Whitehead Light Station. 

I joined the Coast Guard in November of 1968, my Father was then a ENCM Chief with 20 years in the Coast Guard, as a Master Chief's son it was not a hard decide which service to join.

Serving on the US Coast Guard’s 378’ Cutter Sherman, my first duty was weathering a Hurricane on Ocean station Bravo then I went to Cuba’s "Gitmo" for Fleet Training Group and finally to Vietnam in the Spring of 1970

 Captain Paul Lutz, my commanding officer, wrote about the events of Sherman's Vietnam cruise in 1970."The Coast Guard in Vietnam" Please click the title to read our Captains account of our service.

 The ship returned to her home port in Boston Mass. to a hero's welcome. Many of us had our choice of duty stations.  I asked for and got USCG Base Curtis Bay Maryland Field Testing and Development unit. 

 I loved my time on the Sherman, good memories and friends as well! Hopefully many of the Sherman crew will also post photos and comments.

About Me

I enjoyed all of my sea duty, but Sherman was an amazing ship after serving in two that were built during WWII. I wanted to stay, but got dragged off to CCGDOne(eee) in '72. Later went to Oklahoma State University Technical institute & French Frigate Shoals. From there I went to LORTESTFAC Caribou, ME & became CO there when it became an operational Loran C transmitting station. I retired at Caribou when the detailer insisted that I MUST take orders to Headquarters. Retired to Texas in 1980 & still here. (I still have the beard, but it is no longer black).

About Me

The picture I used is from my service later on Governor's Island in 1976.

I served on the Sherman as a Fireman out of "Sunny" Cape May, NJ Boot Camp and reported to the ship in 1972 while it was stationed in Boston. Went on several Ocean Station Bravo trips, and one trip to GITMO. I was in the Engineering group. I worked with Rat, Saint, lot's of nicknames then and was often called BJ. We called our First Class Supervior Fred (as in Fred Flintstone....yeah that is right) His real name was Norman Lidstone. We did have some fun and some serious things happen. I'll spare you the sea stories for now, but will be glad to relate if you want sometime.
