As a former UK SAR Mission Controller who also attended Governors Island, I can appreciate much of what is unsaid in all the videos of USCG rescues. The dedication, training and experience displayed by all the personnel seen or unseen. I worked the 1979 Fastnet Disaster, Penlee Lifeboat loss and the lash ship Munchen amongst many others.
Today being Rememberance Sunday [Veterans Day] when our service men/women and remembered perhaps we should also spare a thought for those we tried but didn’t manage to save at sea.
