    This famous Coastie joined the USCG as a cook in 1939, until his amazing writing skills led the Coast Guard to create the Journalist rating, or JO.  After retiring as a JOC in 1959, this person went on to pen an epic novel about a family's quest for freedom for which he is still famous.

    Name the Coastie AND the novel.
