Couldn't find an actual unit pic from the 70's but here is the patch for Group LMR.  I was here until 1979 when I (& my wife and 2 children) were transferred to the Fifth Coast Guard District in Norfolk, VA.

Spent three years in Virginia and then in 1982 I was transferred (with wife & 3 children now) to what was (to me) my favorite unit during my Coast Guard career.  The Gulf Strike Team.  First at the NASA Test Site in Bay St. Louis, MS then (in 1984) the unit (and I &wife & 4 children) relocated to the Aviation Training center in Mobile, Al.  Seen below from the air in the foreground.
Then in 1988 I was transferred (with wife & 5 children) to what would be my final unit before I retired in 1992.  The Eighth Coast Guard District in New Orleans, LA.
That (in a nutshell) was my Coast Guard Life.  Part of my past, but it will always be a part of me.  SEMPER PARATUS!
Everyone have a great day!
