Axhammer OK, that's a tough one with no clues other than the lack of background. I post more pics of that one as soon as I find some. But in the mean time, Ill go to another AIRSTA that will be easy for you.

vadslram Tough to say. It isn't Kodiak but that's about all I can think for sure given the flat horizon.

I was in G-109.

Axhammer Checking in with my Coastie Jeeper Brethren... I did 26 years, starting with L-111 (1980) at Cape May. I would do it over again in a heartbeat. Iíll start with a picture of my 1986 CJ-7. We need more pictures in this thread.

Who knows what Air Station this is? Between the CJ-7 and the H-52 in the background, itís not hard to figure the timeframe, anyone want to guess what year?

and
work for SILC (I still got college and assorted kid expenses)

The best billet was SUPTCENGINY It was just a TAD pool and I got to go to a whole bunch of units, I only listed the ones I was at for over 60 days.
Next best was the MLCA tours. I traveled ~270 days a year. I've been to every unit in Lantarea and most of the ones in PAC. It didn't take long before I couldn't show up at a unit and see someone I knew. CG is a SMALL service.

Funniest story was doing an inspection at LORSTA Gillette. We flew in and had directions. When we got there all we saw was a sign. The small antenna in the back is where the actual building was but we didn't know that until we called and the ETC laughed at us...he fail the inspection

I included a collage I made of the WTC and where it used to be from the GI ferry.
Jeez man. That's like the jackpot. The picks aren't final but it looks grim for staying in NY. I might try to get on a buoy tender this go around.

Been seriously disappointed in the CG lately... Coming up on ny 8 year mark and I feel they are trying to find ways to give people the boot. I'm NOT in any danger or anything.. Just saying..


They are making a new alcohol consumption policy.. Not sure if its CG wide or just D1... No consumption within 24 hours of going on duty..so basically during football season I can't drink a beer and watch a game..
