    Sept. 23 marked the 56th anniversary of the day I entered the Coast Guard on active duty.
    My long association with the outfit has made more of an impact on my life than anything.

    I love a good conversion story, that moment or series of moments that lead up to a person going from not belonging to Jesus to belonging to him.
    I remember telling my friend Mike that it was like getting married. Either you are or you aren’t. I told him you can think you’re married, say you’re married, live with another person as if you’re married, but unless you’ve signed the marriage license and said, “I do,” you’re not married.
