this picture was taken off shore Chicago. We were doing hoist training with Coast Guard Station Calumet Harbor. I am permanently stationed in Savannah GA. I was TAD based out of Muskegon Michigan. Photo taken by my rescue swimmer.
I was the corporate industrial photographer for Sperry Gyroscope/Unisys and normally photograph F-18s and Nuclear submarines. But I was sent on this special assignment to photograph the Marines training and working on their CH-53 at the Marine Corps Air Station
