My father was in the Merchant Marine from around 1939 to 1946. I recently looked at his discharge and it was from the Coast Guard.. Is that typical ?. My Dad was bitter that the US government didnt consider Merchant Mariners veterans until I believe the late 1980's. He never spoke to me of combat until I joined the Marine Corps during Vietnam.
