Memorial Service for Pt Welcome hero and survivor, BMC Patterson

The Coast Guard Compass reports a memorial service for Chief Boatswains Mate Richard Patterson on June 16.

Frequent Contributor Bill Welles has a good article recounting the incident if you would like to know a bit more.

Sounds like BMC Patterson might be a good namesake for a Webber class cutter.

  2. Great article. One of the crew (McKenney?) was later assigned to the recruiting station in Denver (he joked that he’d asked to be as far from the ocean as possible). He signed me up for OCS class 69-1.
