 Forgotten Heroes: The U.S. Life-Saving Service on the Great Lakes by Fred Stonehouse

March 6, 2018, 7:00 p.m.

Ore Dock Brewing Company

 From 1874 until 1915 when it became the U.S. Coast Guard, the men of this remarkable organization displayed incredible courage and bravery in rescuing over 55,000 people from potential death on the Great Lakes. Despite personal danger or difficulty, the life-savers invariably accomplished the rescue. Their unofficial motto was “Regulations say we have to go out, they say nothing about coming back.” It was a motto by which they lived, and in some cases, died.
