REMEMBRANCES

LEFT FOR DAVID CHARLES BROSTROM
POSTED ON 11.20.2021
POSTED BY: CDR RICHARD J WADE USN Ret

We shared a tent at survival camp

Dave was exuberant… a graduate of the Goast Guard Academy which he referred to as the ZOO. I met with the civilian photographer who was aboard his Cutter when the United States Air Forces made several gun runs on his boat and killed him. What a waste. I was a Navy Photographer and we filmed his Cutter while making a movie of the Coast Guard in Vietnam. Friendly Fire BEAUTIFUL…BEAUTIFUL
