camaraderie is a jewel in the rough camaraderie is a jewel in the rough camaraderie is a jewel in the rough
When we were driven ashore in Grenada after Ivan and violence was all around us...2 Coasties came in under cover (univited by the Grenada gov't) in a dinghy and made sure we and others were OK and let us know how to contact them if conditions deteriorated as well as bringing water.
This when the loacal American consulate would not even let us in their gates!
I will always be grateful for their service and dedication to helping mariners.
