Savannah maintains two ready crews who can launch within 30 minutes of a call at any time. You can learn more about the Coast Guard of Savannah in our latest issue!
The Women’s Reserve of the Coast Guard (SPARS) was created on Nov. 23, 1942 “to expedite the war effort by providing for releasing officers and men for duty at sea and their replacement by women in the shore establishment of the Coast Guard”. Women were not to serve outside the continental United States, and no woman, officer or enlisted, could issue orders to any male serviceman. The first 153 enlisted SPARs and 15 SPAR officers were former WAVES who agreed to be discharged from the Navy and join the Coast Guard.
SPAR Aileen Anita Cooke, apprentice seamen, is receiving her “boot” course at a United States Training Station, Manhattan Beach, Brooklyn, New York, 1941-1945.
Yesterday at 230pm, my cousin, Lieutenant Commander Alan Patterson’s, remains were laid to rest in a columbarium at the US Naval Academy.
The messages of the service were “Love” and “‘Can’t’ never did anything.” He lived by these very words, and his life was full of love and inspiration that left an impression on all those he left behind.
