This article presents the author's experience in the U.S. Coast Guard. On the author's first day on the board of the USCGC Morgenthau, the captain had suggested that the author should join one of his boat crews for a quick orientation. While under training, the author was impressed most by the rich diversity and depth of experience common among the crew. Their assignments were as varied and interesting as one can imagine, rescue operations in the Aleutians, fisheries patrols in Alaska, aids to navigation work on the Great Lakes, icebreaking operations in Antarctica, station work in Saint Thomas, and counternarcotics missions around the world.
