    Thank you for your service, to both of you. The military was far different then from what it is today.

    I was in the first class 1963 in Cape May.  I believe the very originating unit. 
    Twenty members of which 10 went on to Legune. I was not one of those chosen.

    I wrote a detailed thing about my time in K-47 at Alameda in 1965 in addition to my A School Coastal Forces team 11. I sent this to the editor of the Reservist for info only. The editor had been clean it up a bit and I left it alone. Years later my son found it on the USCG history site. I was surprised. The next guy to come back from boot and Coastal Forces A School arrived on the weekend the announcement was made in 1967 that the whole thing was disbanded.

    I should have added that the picture on the USCG History site is of Coastal Forces Team 11 by the boat house at Alameda in early January 1966. I know, who contributed the photo. I still have one, but in poor shape. I used the training and skills learned in the CG all through my working life. The CG was a good thing and good to me. I tried to do my best to be a good member over the years of serving in the ready boat unist, MARDEZ and MSO. Mike Benjamin PSC Ret.

    I was in the Coastal Forces in 1966. Our leader's name was Taylor and here are the names of those I remember were in the unit with me:

    Carlson
    Skoog
    Roundtree
    Maggiora
    Graham
    Taylor
    Fancher


    We trained at Camp Roberts for weeks then went to Camp Pendleton for ITR (Infantry Training Regiment) and BIT (Basic Infantry Training) with the Marines at Horno.
