Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0975467689, Paperback)Ken Smith was just a boy of 18 in 1951 when the government asked him to serve. Despite his flat feet, he enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard and began a three-year adventure that took him from the frigid North Atlantic to a tiny atoll in the South Pacific called Ulithi. This book is Smith's fond recollection of his time in the service, when the only dangers came from the "push-push" girls, the bad decisions of Lt. "Lard-Ass" and an ungrounded gooseneck lamp. This is a hilarious and heartwarming story that will appeal to all old "Coasties" and landlubbers alike.
