About the Book
Tropical Latitudes is an engaging account of a young manís experience in the United States Coast Guard and Coast Guard Reserve. Beginning in the mid 1960ís, the tales of the authorís tours of duty from boot camp, through assignments to various Coast Guard cutters, and the variety of assignments these ships were delegated to, provides a close-up look into the operations of the smallest of the 5 branches of the U.S. military services.

From the rescues of countless Cuban refugees to search and rescue cases and NASA operations the authorís sometimes humorous accounts of life aboard aging as well as brand new ships gives the reader an insight into what the Coast Guard does in its more little known day-to-day missions at sea and ashore.

Told from the perspective of someone who lived through the good, the bad, and the ugly episodes of the ever-changing life on the ocean these stories will capture the readerís attention and bring them a grin or two along the way.



About the Author
The authorís 36 years with the U.S. Coast Guard cover a breadth of missions that may be little known to the public. His experiences capture a rich and sometimes humorous history of a sailorís journey at sea and ashore during the latter part of the 20th century.
