This story, in the form of an email dated 21Apr19 to Garry Nelson, FC (06-08), was submitted by
Chris Mather, FSO-IS (06-08) regarding our Auxiliary Patrols who were involved with a distressed
whale on 20Apr19.

I wanted to share some info about what went on yesterday after you guys passed the distressed whale off to
Raider (CGAux Vessel). It’s a good news/sad news story really. The good news is the system worked as it’s
supposed to. We maintained sight of the whale while trained mammal rescue experts from NOAA, Pacific
Marine Mammal Center, and SeaWorld scrambled and launched their two small inflatables. They transferred a
bunch of gear and personnel onto Raider and designated us the safety vessel. First task was to access the whale’s
condition and determine if any disentanglement was feasible. As you all saw, the gray was in severe distress
with a gill net and heavy line weighing down the fluke so much it remained submerged. They did their
assessment with close approaches, cameras and a drone. The sad part is they estimate the juvenile whale is so
severely emaciated that it likely will not survive even with full disentanglement (although you never know!).
They decided to proceed with disentanglement after consulting directly with NOAA. Next task is to approach
close enough to drop a grappling hook over the dragging line/net. The grappling hook is set up like our skiff
hooks … they pull the pole back after it’s on with a working line attached. At the end of the working line is a
large orange buoy. This does two things, first it’s much easier to track the whale and not lose sight. Second, they
use the working line to approach for cutting the net/line. Not a swift operation, as they worked very carefully
and methodically until sunset. When they made their first approach for cutting the whale showed some life and
turned 180 degrees quickly, and also began trumpeting. The line was so tough they broke a couple of the special
knives they use (think about a seat belt cutter on the end of a long pole). They did manage to cut some free but
not all, and decided to RTB at 1915 hours (they don’t operate after sunset for obvious reasons). Unfortunately,
the telemetry beacon they had was not pinging satellites at NOAA (malfunction), so they decided to just leave
the working line with orange buoy attached.

Whale in distress (continued from previous page)

If the whale is sighted again this morning (usually by the commercial boats) then they have teams (including
Raider) standing by to launch again. Even if they can’t fully disentangle, sometimes the gear they recover can
be identified and they will work the issue in reverse for prevention. They thought this particular gear looked
like the whale may have picked it up in Mexico, possibly months ago.
Editor’s note: The following morning the whale was not located.

Blue Mass, St Martin de Porres Catholic Church
Yorba Linda, CA. 25May19.

An annual Blue Mass is celebrated nationally in the Catholic
Church to honor those involved in public safety. These include
police officers, firefighters, correctional officers, 9-1-1
operators, and EMS personnel. Each year, St Martin’s
organizers and Chief Gene Hernandez request that the USCG
Auxiliary attend the event, which includes the blessing of the
emergency vehicles. This year, as always, special recognition
was given to the USCG, the oldest military branch.
The color blue relates to the blue colored uniforms predominantly used by these services. The Blue Mass,
similar to the Red Mass, also honors those who have died in the line of duty and those currently serving as
first responders. The Blue Mass is an opportunity for the community to show gratitude to first responders
and their families.

Coastie meets the kids at Commonwealth Elementary School in Fullerton, CA. Submitted by
Rudy Lopez Jr, SO-PB

On 15Mar19, members of Division 6 along with "Coastie" met with the children in the Kindergarten, 1st and
2nd grades of Commonwealth Elementary School located in Fullerton, CA to talk about boating safety and
Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs). "Coastie" was a hit among the children, parents and school staff in
attendance. A demonstration on the proper wearing of the PFD was conducted using some PFDs loaned out by
West Marine, Long Beach (to promote the free PFD loaner programs available). Coloring books were handed
out to each child after the presentation was completed. A challenge was made to the kids to do their very best
in coloring the books, and winners will be picked by their teachers. We asked the teachers that the criteria to
select the winners should also be based on their efforts in school and at home.

On 22May19, in recognition of National Safe Boating Week, four members from Division 6 returned to
Commonwealth Elementary School and presented PFD's to five kids selected as winners of the Coast Guard
Auxiliary Coloring Book contest. Winners were selected by their teachers.

Memorial Day 2019
This information was submitted by
Mark Forster, VFC, FSO-PA (06-08).

On 27May19, Mark Forster, VFC (06-08),
recognizing the significance of what
Memorial Day stands for, decided he
wanted to honor those Military Heroes who
never came home. Mark put on his Service
Dress Blues, responded to the entrance to
the Dana Point Harbor by the Richard
Henry Dana statue and stood watch from
sunrise at 0543 hours until 1230 hours.

Here is his story.
On 27May19 beginning at Sunrise, I stood at attention in front of the
Richard Henry Dana statue in Dana Point Harbor as a tribute to the
fallen men and women of the armed service. Later that day I was no
longer capable of continuing due to the pain. However, the
overwhelming love and support from the people of Dana Point and
most importantly from our veterans made it worth every moment. I
was so full of honor I only wish I could have continued on. As I stood
at attention during my watch I counted over 237 passerby’s that either
saluted, gave a heartfelt thumbs up or simply said "THANK YOU". I
did not think for a moment that each thank you was for me. Rather, I
knew they were for our fallen.

Early on a woman walked up beside me and whispered in my ear, if it was not for the US military my
family would have never made it out of Germany. Her family was on the last train the day before Hitler
took over. At that moment I stood taller and stronger. As a tear ran down my cheek, the woman kindly
wiped it away and then she was gone.

“Right place at the right time” submitted by
Rudy Lopez Jr, SO-PB (06-02) and Garry
Nelson, FC (06-08)

On 18May19, while attending a private function at the
Dana Point Yacht Club (DPYC), Rudy Lopez Jr, SO-
PB (06-02) looked toward the marina at a boat parade
that was taking place and saw a familiar vessel that
appeared to be in it. The “Easy Does It” out of Dana
Point Harbor, proudly displaying her Coast Guard
Auxiliary Patrol Banner, was among the participants
in the parade…or so it appeared. The “Easy Does It”,
captained by Garry Nelson, FC (06-08), normally

patrols the Dana Point Harbor and the surrounding areas so it is not uncommon to see his vessel out. Rudy
noticed that the “Easy Does It” had a kayak in tow which looked odd since normally one would have an
inflatable being pulled. Not to miss a photo opportunity, Rudy snapped a couple of pictures of the vessel as
she passed by.

At the next Division 6 meeting held 20May19, during the Flotilla Commander reports session, Garry Nelson
happened to mention what took place on 18May19, stating they had been out on patrol on the “Easy Does It”
when they noticed two people in the water hanging on to their kayak. Garry immediately responded to them
and found a man and woman in distress. Garry found that both had fallen out of the kayak into the water and
had been holding on to it for some time unable to climb back on board. The woman said she could no longer
feel her legs and was exhausted. The crew of the “Easy Does It” sprang into action and brought the two on
board, safely returning them to the docks. After Garry shared his experience to those attending the meeting,
Rudy told him his story about being at the DPYC that morning and showed him the photo. As it turns out,
the photo Rudy had taken of the “Easy Does It” as she returned to port with the kayakers was of a successful
rescue. Right place at the right time for the rescue and the photo.

Bravo Zulu to the “Easy Does It” and her crew.

Department, from the Long Beach Police Department who flew in on their Airship (helicopter), and
members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary all took part in this visit. “Coastie” was a big hit among the kids.
During the presentation, they heard “Coastie” talk about boating safety, they were given a demonstration
on the use and proper wear of PFDs, and then they listened to communication made via radio to Coast
Guard Auxiliary – Huntington Beach Radio 2 (HBR2). The kids really lit up when they heard their school
name mentioned on the radio.

Measles/Mumps/Rubella
Booster Vaccine (MMR)

By Mark N. Monroe, M.D.
FSO-DV

Recently I have had a rash of people asking me if they are immune to current outbreak of Measles or if
they need a booster shot.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia has issued the reply:

Measles was declared officially eliminated in United States in year 2000. The number of cases this year
so far has reached 764 mainly due to unvaccinated individuals. As the disease is air-borne, highly
contagious, and there is no cure (only supportive treatment), it’s most dangerous in unvaccinated
immuno-compromised individuals such as infants, young children and adults then for older children
and adolescents who have been vaccinated. Symptoms can include cough, fever, ear infections, Kolpik
spots (blue-white spots on the tongue), and diarrhea. The rash usually starts 4 days after fever spreading
from the hands and feet to the torso. If unrecognized and untreated, it can lead to pneumonia and death.

Mumps most commonly causes fever and swelling of the parotid salivary glands in the head.
Complications include inflammation of testicles and ovaries which can cause infertility. Other
complications include pancreatitis, deafness, aseptic meningitis, and encephalitis. Treatment is
supportive and again vaccination is best.

Rubella (or German Measles) rash starts with the torso and spreads to the arms and legs. Symptoms
include low grade fever, and general malaise (feeling of unwell). The virus causes birth defects especially
in the first 3 months of pregnancy.

The CDC has recommended that everyone born between 1957 and 1989 receive a booster MMR shot if
a blood test shows that they are not immune. Current guidelines include vaccination of all children
between the ages of 12 to 15 months and again between the ages of 4 to 6 years of age. Measles incubation
period is 10-12 from exposure and the rash begins 2-4 days after fever. Mumps incubation period is 16-
18 days after exposure. Rubella incubation period is 14 days after exposure.
