Coast Guard Marine Port Safety Station ELD Supervisor MAA 7/69-5/70 [shared with USN-USMC as NWS, NAVWPNSTA, Seal Beach North], Port Chicago, Concord Ca. There are a lot of Coast Guard Members you should have included on your list, not just USA USN USMC USAF military. Coast Guard should also be included. We died in WW2, we died in Korea, we died in Mid East where we have been since 1990.
