What made this book great for me, is that the stories center around CGC COURAGEOUS a sister ship to the one I volunteer aboard. Holmes served in the 70s. Many of the 210 foot medium endurance cutters are still afloat and serving today. His stories came alive for me, since I could easily picture the shipboard environment he was describing.
Reasonably well written, set of short anecdotes about Holme's time in the CG in the 70s. While times are different, I think my active duty friends would recognize his experiences as much like their own in many ways.
The books detail the life of one Guardsman and his career, starting with Basic Training, and continuing through his becoming a commissioned officer.
Lots of detail, and told in a fashion that will let everyone understand, whether they have a nautical bent or not.
