Default Coast Guard Chief killed

This was a LE Action so I posted it here, hope that is alright.

This was my Nephews boat, he was part of the crew that retired the old 83 and commissioned the new 87, brought it from Louisiana to California. I believe the deceased took over when my Nephew retired this year as a Senior Chief. The boat stood in the background, Terminal Island, during the retirement ceremony and I got met the crew.

RIP Sailor.
