    I saw the previous post from an earlier date. I formed with Quebec 116 on 5 Sep 1983 and thought it was the end of the WORLD when they said I needed all 4 wisdom teeth removed. THEN came the infection... I finished with Romeo-116 the first week of November, YN1 Cecelia Bragg was the meanest female to walk the face of the planet until the last week... She became HUMAN and answered all questions about the REAL Coast Guard.

    Thank you,YN1 Bragg, wherever you are...

    I had YN1 Bragg as CC of Victor 114. She really was something else. When she picked us up I remember looking at her and it was like I was looking in a kaleidoscope and her face was in the center. Nothing else was clear except that this woman was tough. You are right, as we went along she became human. Our company fell victim to the Cape May crud. Everyone got sick, even YN1. We all had to really pull together and she was a great support. Talk about an influence in my life!

    I missed GM1's original post 3 years ago. Great to have 2 true Old Guard Coasties on this forum. I welcome you both and thank you. My ex-husband was India-121. A couple of years after both of you. But he still remembers his CC, BM1 Stott. Tough as nails, he was. By the end, everyone in I121 appreciated him and really admired him. On off base liberty they bought him a beautiful piece of artwork. I was fortunate to live close enough that I went for the weekend. I took it home, had a name plate made with their company dates and company name. I brought it back the following weekend and they left it "gear adrift" in the barrack for BM1. Amazing how much the CC's influence your life and you never forget them. You had to be early 80's for boot camp?? Jim graduated in October 1985.
