Introduction To Gonzo The Coast Guard Years
The Coast Guard Years Podcast Introduction: Hi and welcome to Gonzo, The Coast Guard Years Podcast. My name is Nicholas Gonzalez, and my Dad, Tim Gonzalez, well he’s Gonzo, at least that’s what his Coast Guard friends that I met call him. Seems that nicknames stuck for life. This Podcast is about my Dad’s, time in the Coast Guard from October 1987 to May 1992. The hope of this podcast is to shed a little light on what it was like to be in the US Coast Guard, prior to 9/11. It’s not a recruiting tool, nor a pitch to join up or even an attempt to glamorize it at all. Although if you find that you’re interested in knowing more about the Coast Guard, feel free to put a question in the comments section. We will do our best to respond. Hopefully you will find this both entertaining and informative, the stories you’re going to hear are not usually spoken about publicly, or at least not outside of your local Coast Guard Watering hole. Please keep in my mind that these “tales” are being told from my Dad’s point of view, and not everyone will share his views but maybe relate, just a little bit. “OH, and some of the names you’re going to hear along the way, well they’ve been changed, not so much to protect the innocent. Just the story that they are in may end up being a little embarrassing and they wouldn’t necessarily want anyone else to know about their involvement.
