Father's Day retirement for MK2 conducted by 2LT son On Father's Day, June 17, Petty Officer 2nd Class John Brycki, a member of Station Milwaukee, retired from the Coast Guard. Brycki's career was commemorated with an intimate ceremony held outdoors at Sector Lake Michigan in Milwaukee. This retirement was special for the machinery technician, because it was led by his son, 2nd Lt. Jacob Brycki, a member of the Wisconsin Army National Guard. Brycki enlisted in the Navy in 1985 and became a boiler technician before lateraling to machinist mate. During his service in the Navy, he served aboard the USS LaSalle and the USS Sierra , and deployed to the Persian Gulf for a year. In 2006, Brycki enlisted in the Coast Guard as an MK2. He went on to become a member of the boat crew and the boarding team at Station Milwaukee. Fair winds and following seas, MK2.
