While cleaning out my mom's garage for a move, I came across my father's yearbook from his 1969 tour on the USCG Cutter Westwind. I was recently talking about the yearbook with a coworker, who served on a Navy ship in WWII and he said that yearbooks were a common thing (unknown to me until then) and that many service men and women have lost theirs through the years and would love to see them online.
With that in mind, I scanned my father's yearbook and have it hosted on my website. If anyone is interested, you can see the yearbook here:http://michaeljgirard.com/index.php...-yearbook/
I'm hoping this finds former shipmates of my father's, their families, anyone who served on the Westwind in other years or anyone who has an interest in this sort of thing.
While I have no intention of taking this down, if you'd like a hard-copy of these photos, feel free to contact me.
