I just found out that the US Coast Guard recently commissioned a cutter after a man named Robert J Yered. Before I got into the radio profession, I worked labor for Bob Yered for about 5 years. I never knew all the time I worked for him that he earned the Silver Star , Bronze Star, Purple Heart and Vietnam Service Medal. I knew he served overseas but he never talked about it. The only clue I had as a young man to his heroic actions is that I can tell you he was one of the toughest "son of a guns" Ive ever had the pleasure to know. He used to make me cut entire football fields with a regular 21 inch residential style lawnmower. I'd set out at about 7am with the mower and a 5 gallon can of gas, and a jug of water and I'd have it done by 3pm. He insisted on straight rows. The next day he would have me disassemble and overhaul the little mower down to the piston and valves, repack the crankshaft then start all over again. Hard work, but as a young man, I learned a lot. Thanks Bob for the life lessons all those years ago. Wish you could see the ship. I hope to see it someday myself.
