    Hello all,
    Just found this forum while googling . My name is Jack Geck or Coasty91. I joined the USCG in 1967 and spent 10 great years as an Aviation Machinist Mate(AD)then 14 years  in Merchant Marine Safety. Loved it all. Assignments as follows:
    Boot camp in Alameda
    AD school USN NATC Memphis TN
    USCG Airstation San Francisco 1968 -1973
    USCG Airstation Barbers Point 1973-1977
    USCG RTC Yortown OCS 1977
    USCG Marine Inspection Office LA/LB 1978-1983
    USCG Marine Safety Office San Juan PR 1983-1987
    USCG Marine Safety Office San Francisco 1987-1991
    I worked for California Department of Fish and Game, Office of Spill Prevention and Response  and did a 2 year assignment with the Governors office of Homeland Security. then I worked for FEMA for 6 years and spent 2 years on the National Response Team. Currently serving in the California State Guard as a Liaison Officer to the Office of Emergency Services. (Wearing an Army uniform now). In my spare time, I prospect for gold in the Sierra Mountains with a metal detector and write articles for the California Mining Journal.
    My father was in the Coast Guard and did over 30 years,so I spent my youth moving with his assignments. I went to 23 different schools before graduating from high school and would not trade it for annything.
    I'm still working on my college degree and who knows someday I might even finish that.

    Welcome aboard! My ex was in the M field for 95% of his career. He loved it. He now owns a tugboat company in Houston. Love to see others that were at Marine Safety Offices!
