Coast Guard, 3 Years

The CG put my engineering degree to work in their Merchant Marine Technical office in Cleveland. The office did plan review of construction and renovations on commercial vessels. We were essentially the building inspectors for the marine crowd. The job entailed a few trips "out on the lakes" to participate in "trials" to prove the adequacy of major work or new construction. It is proper, and preferred, to call even a thousand footer a "boat" on the Great Lakes. Ask me about the Edmund Fiitzgerald as I have some opinions as to why she split in two and went down with all hands (10 months after I returned to civilian life.)
