The information is gleaned from official Coast Guard reports, local news stories and the men who braved the seas that night themselves. Attractive solid cast metal letter opener in the form of a Coast Guard sword with sword knot and removable scabbard resembles nicely the actual dress sword. Attractive opener measures 9 long and is of metal, with nicely made matching scabbard. Until the latter part of 1928, the Im Alone operated on the New England Coast and had caused the Coast Guard forces a great deal of trouble. The Im Alone was a notorious smuggling vessel, having been engaged in smuggling liquor into the United States for several years. Pamlico was designated as WPR-57 and was designed to cruise in inland waters and therefore had an extremely shallow draft. Her officers and crew transferred en mass from the cutter Boutwell, after that vessel was slated to be decommissioned later in July. Combines true, dramatic stories of Coast Guard rescues with interesting accounts of the function and duties of various branches of the service. Mc Adams used to say that he was born on a bar during a storm, resulting in his 26-year career in rescue work.
A collection of stories, photographs and illustrations detailing the career of CG36500 and the famous rescue of thirty-two men from a broken tanker on the night of February 8, 1952 off Chatham, Massachusetts. The largest photograph is approximately 6 x 3 7/8" and is labeled "Infantry Drill" U. This is a great look into the life on a cutter at sea in the Revenue Cutter Service or very early Coast Guard. The Im Alone was a notorious smuggling vessel, having been engaged in smuggling liquor into the United States for several years. The Dexter was forced to fire on the schooner Im Alone when their captain refused to surrender or allow the cutters officer to board and search the vessel. One tear, well worn but still intact and fairly supple. Body is overall intact but with some fraying to some edges, and a 3 rip, paint spot, etc. Inscribed by the author to his brother William [with Williams bookplate] dated September 14, 1937. Master Chief Mc Adams is surely one of the most famous enlisted person who ever served in the U. He appeared on numerous television programs, including "To Tell The Truth" and the "Who's Who" feature of Charles Kuralt's "On the Road" program.

This tectonic time bomb is alarmingly similar to Tohoku, capable of generating a megathrust earthquake at or above magnitude 9, and about as close to Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver as the Tohoku fault is to Japan’s coast.
