He has written extensively about not only his own experience, but also from his research into several Coast Guard units and incidents.  He has graciously permitted Jack's Joint to include his writings in this collection.

The following are direct links into each story on his web site. I have taken the liberty to use a modification of his front page as this page. Eventually all of his Coast Guard writings will be directly incorporated into Jack's Joint with some slight editing, modifications and a change in format. 

AOC J.R. Lee is a Retired Coast Guardsman and co-authored several of the articles. He has since crossed the bar. His son, James Lee, gave permission to use his father's work.
