Thank you for add. Still learning how to use this site. Saw a post from Mr Ed Clancy and Master Mate. If anyone else has input would be appreciated. Ern-els was a bar outside Coast Guard Yard in Curtis Bay, MD. My Grandfather owned the bar in early 70's. Not sure how long before that
My wife had been doing some reasearch for family history, health reasons. During the reasearch she found a conversation between you and someone else on a Coast Guard forum.
I am retired USCG. Reading your 'article' brought me tears and fond memories. My grandfather was Ernel. My uncle, a young boy at the time was always there with him. He grew up in that bar.
Thank you for your service
I would be intrested any pics or stories you have from there. I do not remember the patch board, also would love to know what happend to it. I am asking family members
