Kenneth Joe (JR) Ritchie passed away on 18 Aug 2013 after a long illness. He was given "A Gift of Life" organ transplant in July 2000 and was eternally grateful for the additional 13 years of life he was able to experience from that generous gift.
Joe was born on Jan 20, 1937 in Coffeyville, Ks. He retired from the Coast Guard, as a Chief Petty Officer. He was owner of J.R.'s Liquor in Lakehills, Tx for the past 18 years. He was a life member of the NCOA, the forming Chapter Chairman of the Purple Post Chapter, and a member of the Knights of the Round Table. He was a life member of the American Legion, serving as a past Post Commander.
Joe is survived by his wife of 25 years, Linda, daughters Rebecca, Michelle and Connie, sons John and Joe, ten grandchildren, seven great grandchildren, his brother, his nephew and niece.
He was preceded in death by his parents, a grandson and a niece.
His family and friends will celebrate his life with a Wake at the Lakehills American Legion on Sat, Aug 24, 2013, 3 to 6 PM. - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/sanantonio/obituary.aspx?n=kenneth-ritchie&pid=166553839#fbLoggedOut

LennoxBrief summary of cnehgas so far for next release:MIUI_Au A2SD back in. Will now automatically reboot to recovery after first reboot (will get to boot animation, green led will stay on while moving folders, then auto reboot to recovery), so you can fix permissions to hopefully avoid the low volume bug and other issues. I strongly recommend not moving the /data/data folder to sd-ext for now because we don't have a patched libsqlite yet and the lag is noticeable, either the default A2SD or PC-A2SD seem to perform best for me.Readded LED permissions fox compatibility with older apps notifications.Readded timer to sd-ext mount for slower sd cards.Fixed default trackball scroll speed (it's in settings but the default was shocking for moving around text.)Fixed (hopefully) the last of the force closes in the dialer.Fixed problems with Google Calendar Sync.A few tweaks to hopefully give better performance for the UI.Custom installer script readded for the lazy tweakers :pHboot determining script upgraded, now even Oxygen hboot users can run MIUI_Au v4. Please note everyone that only stock hboot users can perform a data wipe, as the Data++ (180Mb) Hboot is borderline and to avoid dramas I've automatically moved /system/app to sd-ext for any hboot 140-200 Mb, and anything less then 140 has fonts and framework moved to sd-ext also, and /system/media is symlinked to data. Theres no other way to make it work for everyone (other then removing most of the apps from the rom ). So if you ever do need to do a data wipe, be sure to flash the rom again afterwards otherwise you WILL bootloop. I've tested running with all 4 folders moved and it didn't have any negative effect on performance for me.Will clean up the main post when I do update and set everything out clearer and explain better.Please report any more bugs / missed translations / issues as soon as you find them.

I have not viewed this page in a long time. I was saddened to see that Captain Volkle had died. He was our Squadron Commander in Vietnam and was very well like and admired. He spent a good deal of this time running interference for us with the Navy.
Also he was the last Division 12 Commander. He oversaw the transfer of the Division and its WPB to the Navy then to the Vietnamese who, the latter, he trusted little.
He was an excellent officer.

2nd - I found your book a 'great read' and look forward to your next one.
3rd - Too many people are negative about everything and spend all there time looking for something to bitch about ... relax and be happy especially for anyone in our small group of professionals that is gifted ... we have writers, composers, singers ...

For awhile now the controversy of who are we has gone on and on. Are we Coasties or Guardians? Well guys I hit on RDCS John R. Hawkins USCG (Ret) website. On this site a poem is posted that really says it all.
Coasties On The Wall
ť 1997, By: Dolly Juhlin
Could it be your brother there?
Or a sweetheart, or your friend?
All the years that have gone by
Still the memories never end -
Time stands still for seven of them
In memories they stand tall
Seven U.S. Coast Guard men who served
Shadowed names upon a wall -
On a mission far from home
Not knowing what would be
They sacrificed the ultimate
Heroes for you and me -
Ever ready to go forth
Who would know their end
Atta boy's are silent now
Let's not forget these men -
Long ago they sailed away
to a different port of call
Do salute them silently
Coasties one and all.
For me at least it says it all.

I had the pleasure of reading Jim Gilliam's "Point Deception" and enjoyed each and every page. I am sure his exploits, especially as a CG RM1 will bring back great memories, as it did for me. Then you get the opportunity to join in a new adventure with Tim Kelly (the hero and X CG RM1) and leave you waiting until the next book is published. Buy it, read it, enjoy it, become part of it and become a fan, as I did.

Have any of you guys ever read a novel where the protagonist was a Coast Guard RM? No. Well, I would like to invite you to read Point Deception, my new novel just released November 2009. Here is a short excerpt from the book.
FOR THE NEXT FEW YEARS, Kelly’s Coast Guard career
took him from radio school in Groton, Connecticut to Hawaii
and the Far East and then to a shipboard assignment in Norfolk, Virginia.
A couple of years later he was transferred again, this time to a buoy tender in Cordova, Alaska and from there to the Coast Guard Radio Station on Kodiak Island where he remained for the duration of his eighteen month Alaskan tour.
When his tour in Alaska was completed, Radioman First
Class Tim Kelly’s request for assignment to Coast Guard Radio Station Galveston, Texas was approved. He had come full circle returning to the Texas Gulf Coast where he had been born and raised.
This new assignment in Galveston would happily allow
Kelly abundant opportunities to spend time with his estranged father in Freeport, as well as visit with his mother in Port Isabel—approximately four hundred miles further south.
The office was located in a rundown strip mall within walking distance of the Freeport waterfront. The new lettering on the door proclaimed that this was the local office of the Seafarer’s International Union—James Kelly—Union Representative.
Tim entered the outer office, stopping at the edge of the desk belonging to a cute brunette, who immediately put down her nail file and smiled up at him.
“Hi I’m Tim Kelly is my dad in?”
Kelly and his father had never been what you would call
close. But then James Kelly had never been much of a father.
Consequently there was a void in Kelly’s formative years that was only partially filled by male role models like Rodolfo Guzman and Dave Holt. James was an alcoholic ne’er-do-well.
Kelly always felt that he had to make excuses for him.
In Kelly’s words, “It’s kind of like the gambler and the
crooked crap game. The gambler knows that it’s crooked, but
it’s the only crap game in town. My father may not be the hero I would choose for the role but the bottom line is he’s the only father I’ve got.”
At the end of the day James was his biological father and in spite of his many character flaws Kelly loved him.
“I’ll tell him you’re here,” the cute brunette said as she
hurried into the elder Kelly’s private office.
James burst out of his office to give Kelly a big bear hug
that momentarily took his breath away.
Finally holding him out at arm’s length he exclaimed, “Let
me look at you boy! You’ve grown into quite a man! Yes indeed you truly have!”
“Mary Jo, could you bring us some coffee?”
Seated in James’ small, cramped, cluttered office Kelly
and his father were awkwardly trying to fill in the gaps left by years of separation when Mary Jo returned with coffee and doughnuts.
“Thank you Mary Jo. Now, no interruptions unless it’s life
or death; mine.”
When she left Kelly turned to his father and asked, “So
what’s the deal with this union thing?”
“Well as you see. I’m not as young as I once was, and I
wanted to do at least one thing in my life to give back something to the rank and file members of the shrimp fishing industry. I realize that I’ve not been any kind of real father to you, but I wanted to do just one thing in the years that I may have left to me, that possibly would make you proud of me.”
Kelly did not reply.
After a long awkward moment of silence the elder Kelly
asked, “Would you like a little stiffener for your coffee?” He was holding a bottle of Irish whiskey that had suddenly materialized out of one of the desk drawers.
“No thanks dad, it’s a little early for me.”
Pouring a large dollop of Jamison’s Irish whiskey into
his half filled coffee mug, James tilted his head as if deep in thought.
“Where was I? Oh yes, the fat cats who own the fish houses
and the shrimp boats have exploited the fishermen along the
Gulf Coast for years. It’s, dangerous dirty work for poor pay and no benefits. Before I leave this life, I’m going to try and change that. My feeling is that if I can make a difference, no matter how small, it will be my legacy.”
“That sounds good dad. How are the fat cats reacting to your efforts?”
“Like, you might expect. I’ve received threatening phone
calls and letters. I’ve been roughed up on occasion and the local cops, who are in the pockets of the fat cats, have instituted a campaign of blatant police harassment. In other words, my efforts are making some people extremely nervous.”
Approximately two weeks later, “Good afternoon Coast
Guard Radio Galveston, RM2 Smith speaking how may I help
you sir or ma’am?”
“This is the U. S. Public Health Service Hospital Galveston
calling for RM1 Tim Kelly.”
“Please standby ma’am I’ll put him on for you.”
“Hey Kelly. Outside call line two.”
“Got it Smitty thanks.”
“Petty officer Kelly.”
“Petty officer Kelly my name is Sandra Johnson I’m a nurse
at the U.S. Public Health Service Hospital here in Galveston.”
“What can I do for you nurse Johnson?”
“I’m afraid I have some bad news for you petty officer
Kelly. Your father James Kelly was the victim of an apparent mugging and has been transferred to this hospital in critical condition.”
The rest of the conversation was a blur, ending with Kelly
finally saying to Nurse Johnson, “I’ll be there as soon as I can.”
“My name is Tim Kelly. I just got word that my father has
“Yes Mr. Kelly you can take the elevator to the second floor to the ICU and one of the nurses there will help you.”
“Thank you,” Kelly said as he bolted for the stairs, bypassing the elevator.
Kelly pressed the door bell just outside the ICU and
approximately fifteen seconds later was face to face with Sandra Johnson, RN.
“You got here fast Petty Officer Kelly.”
“Please call me Tim.”
“Okay Tim put on this gown and mask and I’ll take you to
“Is he conscious?”
“Yes but he has been medicated for pain, so he might not be
Kelly relieved that his father wasn’t in a coma or on life
support replied, “Sometimes that’s his normal state, he’s Irish you know.”
Nurse Johnson gave Kelly a quizzical look but said nothing.
Kelly noting the look offered, “Sorry, the way I handle stress is with humor.”
Kelly wasn’t prepared to see his father with his left leg up in traction, his right arm in a cast, his face badly bruised, and both eyes almost swollen shut. His first reaction was shock, almost instantly replaced with rage.
“What the hell!”
“Hi kid,” the words were barely audible through James
Kelly’s cracked and swollen lips.
“Who did this to you dad?”
“Some wise guy from here in Galveston. He calls himself
What the Hell, the movie The Guardian was about rescue swimmers and an old CG movie Onion Head starred Andy Griffith where he was a cook on a buoy tender at the start of WWII.

Here you may just want to say 'hi' or let us know how you're doing.
Personally, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the Board for allowing me to assume the role of webmaster of www.Comm-One.Org. It is my intention to publish the very best website I possiby can for a group that deserves the very best.
I also want to acknowledge the years of oustanding service our Webmaster Emeritus, George Datz, has contributed. Believe me, his devotion and hard work is obvious to anyone that looks 'behind the pages' here at www.Comm-One.Org. Thanks, George, I have BIG shoes to fill.
A website can only progress if members and visitors contribute their ideas, comments, suggestions and thoughts to the webmaster. So, do not hesitate in sending me a note now and then.
