NOTES:

Fred's Place and Jack's Joint have combined forces. 35 stories from this site appear on Fred's. 

Many of the stories appearing on this page have been taken from Don Gardner's anthology entitled "Coast Guard Stories." This anthology was amassed from the submissions of the Coast Guard Radio Club. 

Other stories have been derived from Esther Stormer's two books and are credited with their respective stories.

Yet others have been contributed one, two, or ten at a time from people who want to share with the world.

Pictures were added to some of the stories as they are being reworked. Most of them are from Jerry Lentz's "CUTTER BAHOOGLIA" website and Jack's personal collection. 

This Site is devoted to all Coasties and their life experiences. Essays, poems, tall tales, some opinions, and good quality lies will be posted as received and edited. This growing library is part of our culture.

None of these articles should be downloaded for commercial publication without the permission of the various authors.

You are invited to submit your sea stories, sand tales and everything Coast Guard and in between to Jack by email. They will be reviewed, edited, formatted and posted as time permits. Get your creative juices flowing! Share your experiences with all of us.

Don't forget to check the other articles in the main library.
