It has been most interesting to see the Coast Guard remembered here. Thank you, one and all. I only served 10 years active duty, but as Phil Miller has noted, the great experiences and skills learned have served me well for the past 50 years!

I enjoyed my 30 years with the U.S. Coast Guard. It was a great experience and continues to help me in life.
Semper Paratus, Phil. In the 5th Coast Guard District (headquartered at Portsmouth, VA),
the U.S. Coast Guard was known as The Midget Navy, but was spelled The
Midgette Navy. Dare County, NC had two prominent families - the Tillets and the
Midgettes. With no industries located there, the Tillets specialized in fishing for a
living and the Midgettes became a prominent part of the Coast Guard.
