As NYC Fleet Week 2017 comes to close, I remember back in '89 when you called me on the USCGC Hamilton (WHEC 715) to take your duty because you were still in Albany finish up your written and physical exams for NY State Police. I recall whining how big my feet got pounding the pavement on Pier 92 but you convinced me to take all your duties because things were going so well. You saw me off went the cutter went to GITMO in Aug '89 and helped Connie get settled and you were off for the October '89 NYSP class. I was so proud of you. You are my friend, my shipmate, my buddy and God I miss you everyday. Thank you for taking MY DUTIES over the holidays and letting be at home while we were on the Chase together. TJ MARSH
