To: All Naval Armed Guard Members and Supporters

I have had the privilege to be a part of your history by writing and compiling the following books published by the Glencannon Press:

Lester Ellison is a very good friend of mine. His World War II tugboat experience aboard an Army Transport Service tug was briefly told in my Patriots and Heroes series. Les' maritime career led to his desire to inform the American public about the role of the American Merchant Marine in World War II.

In reviewing his life and work, I have decided to write a book concerning the American Merchant Marine and the USNAG and their involvement with tugboats in World War II. Therefore I am looking for stories from mariners and NAGs who served aboard any World War II-related tugboats. These stories may involve all the theaters, training, first/last voyage, D-Day, humor, battle, death, galley, life at sea and in port, etc.

I look forward to compiling and writing this volume on our World War II tugboats. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Gerald Reminick
