A Coastie has crossed the bar and gone to sea, that is how we in the Coast Guard recognize our members that have passed. Paul achieved heroic actions that attribute to the man he was. 61 years ago his ship, the Cutter Yakutat responded to the M/V Fort Mercer that had been split in two during a brutal Nor'easter . With the ship split in two pieces and many failed attempts buy the Cutter to rescue her crew they launched their small boat manned by Paul as the engineer and three others to go to work. 32 lives were save that day off Cape Cod and without the courage and selfless acts by Paul and his crew they would have perished. For his actions Paul was awarded the Silver Lifesaving Medal. This is one of the Coast Guards highest honors. His actions are a lesson for all men that take to the sea, he was a true hero and we honor him then and today. Fair winds and following seas Paul, rest well for we have the watch.

Our hearts are heavy here in Tennessee. I stumbled across his book, The Finest Hour when spring cleaning this past weekend (Mike & I are still unpacking things from our move in December!!). I knew right then and there he was speaking to me. What wonderful stories he would tell, and how I wish I could have heard more. Until then......love you so very much.
Mike, Dianna, & Lucy
