Art Allen - A Nonessential Goverment Employee

This is the guy who made it possible for the Coast Guard to find people and boats adrift. Really cool story about a pretty cool chapter in SAR history. This is the guy who developed SAROPS.

A very great read. A couple of years ago, we lost a diver off Ft. Lauderdale, who drifted to the NW along the buoy line. SAR found him (unfortunately, expired) after a night of searching; after reading the article I can't help but wonder if Art Allen's work played into the recovery. As I continue my journey in the USCGAUX, I keep running into a lot of these folks whose dedication to the science and art of SAR is amazing.

BZ, Mr. Allen.

An excellent article. My daughter’s BF is looking to go Coast Guard. I told him I approved of his choice. Also, I told my daughter if you’re looking to serve to go USCG. Great missions in addition to SAR. Her BF’s dad is prior Navy like me and agrees with his choice.

Bravo Zulu and thanks for your service Mr. Allen!
