Will give you a greater understanding and respect for what the men and women of the U.S. Coast Guard are asked to do and accomplish every day somewhere on the nation's waters.""--US Naval Institute Proceedings""Noble's on-the-spot experiences, his professional background and his established maturity as an historical writer make "The Rescue of the Gale Runner" as gripping an account of rescue efforts as the parallel work of Dennis Smith, retired New York firefighter and historical author who released the evocative "Report from Ground Zero."""--Peninsula Daily News""From the first alarm through the loss of three Coast Guard lives on the first boat, the dispatch of the second boat, and finally the helicopter rescue of the fishermen, Noble was there. . . . It was the worst loss of life suffered by a Coast Guard small boat station since 1961.""--Sequim (Washington) Gazette""
