  • In anticipation of the upcoming 300th Anniversary of the Boston Lighthouse, we've created a special page just for the oldest light station in the country.

  • Coast Guard Auxiliarist Dr. Doug Kroll provided us with another oral history of a Coast Guard veteran.  This time he interviewed retired Commander John Richmond who served 22 years in the Coast Guard Reserve.  CDR Richmond has the distinction of being the son of Commandant Alfred C. Richmond and also served with the actor Beau Bridges as a member of ORTUPS Los Angeles/Long Beach.  CDR Richmond tells us about what it was like to serve in a reserve unit (as well as how Beau managed his acting career while concurrently serving in the Coast Guard Reserve!).  Thanks again, Doug.  

  • We've added a biography page for Commander Ray Evans, USCG (Ret.)  Read about this amazing Coast Guard hero.

  • We're pleased to present an oral history of retired Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard Charles "Skip" Bowen.  The oral history was conducted by his daughter, Kristen: "MCPOCG Charles "Skip" Bowen's oral history." Thank you Kristen!
