I intend to pass it along to my grandson this afternoon. He leaves January 1st for his first USCG ship..... USCG Acushnet WMEC167. As you know she is still serving our country in Ketchikan.
I couldn't be more proud of my grandson (OS3 Thomas Kotrba) or this great ship. Again thanks for sharing and I hope to someday visit the ship and Ketchikan.
