You Can So
This is a tale of a young boy who, above all, wanted to become a Ship's Captain.
|Spanning many decades, read in this autobiography how a young
lad of 10, while visiting a Coast Guard Cutter, determined to become a ship's
Captain both in the United States Coast Guard and in the Merchant Marine, for a
lifetime at sea.
|Despite a physical handicap that prevented his application to the USCG Academy, he achieved a record number of nine seagoing CG cutter commands.|
|This included buoy tenders, a weather station ship that performed a major rescue at sea, a polar icebreaker and a high-speed 36,000 HP search and rescue cutter.|
|He completed his 30-year career as Deputy Commander, Coast Guard Eastern Area.|
|This career was followed with another 10 years in command of large tankers and an oil exploration ship.|
|All the while he continued to fulfill his strong love of classical music performance, which continues to this day, even as he ages to the high eighties.||
