Both of my grandfathers served in the USCG during WWII. My father’s dad served in the Pacific aboard a CG manned US Army ocean going tug. They moved fuel barges all over.
 

My mother’s dad served aboard USCGC Bonham (125’) and the USCGC Cyane (165’) and both were stationed in Alaska. His name was Myron “Mike” C. Hoyer and he was a BM2. The ribbons shown below are the ones he wore on his blues when he married my grandmother in 1944. I’m sure he ended up with a few more, but he didn’t keep much of his stuff. Also shown is a CG ensign that he got/took from CGC Bonham.  I framed it 25 years ago myself.
