To the Editor: About your article in the RESERVIST (Volume LXIII, Issue 4, 2016) "Reservist step up in Cleveland." As the late great Yogi Berra said, "It's déjà vous all over again." I was a lowly 3rd Class Boatswain Mate doing exactly the same mission in 1972, patrolling the rivers in Miami for the Republican National Convention (12 hours on/12 hours off). You may remember, they were not exactly peaceful times with the ongoing Vietnam War. As my mother frequently said, "What goes around comes around." Sincerely, BMC R.F. Amabile, USCGR (ret.) To the Editor: Great article as usual (CG Lighthouses and the history of "The Flying Santa" – RESERVIST Volume 64, Issue 1, 2017), however, the tri-motor aircraft (Shown on page 36) is a Stinson SM-6000 B not a Ford. The Ford is [often the] best remembered tri-motor aircraft. Many companies in the 1920-30's made tri motors. Ford was all metal, not fabric covered as shown. With respect, MK1 J.B. Hargrove, USCGR (ret.) CORRECTIONS: To the Editor: I was looking online at the newest RESERVIST magazine – Volume 64,-Issue 1- 2017; and I was excited to see one of my photos from the 58th Inauguration printed on page 23 (Petty Officer 2nd Class Kyle Jones standing watch with his K-9 Bert). But upon closer look, I saw the photo credit was attributed to PA2 Pat Kelly. Respectfully, PA2 Matt Masaschi, USCGR Editor's Note: PA2 Masaschi, we apologize for the error and thank you for pointing it out so we can correct the record. PS3 Ron Gill In the RESERVIST Issue 1, 2017, the article "A Father's Love Keeps Son's Memory Burning Bright" stated some of the money raised from the inaugural golf tournament went to Ronnie's school loans; this was not the case. All money raised from the PS3 Ronald Gill Memorial Scholarship Foundation has been given as scholarships. We apologize for any confusion. Author Misidentified The article entitled, "Now Hear This: Reserve Policy Manual Update (RESERVIST, Issue 1, 2017, page 42) misidentified the author. The article was written by Lt. Cmdr. John Codd, CG-1311.
