The View from the Rigging By Marcott: Book Review
Richard Marcott's memoir The View from the Rigging: Memoirs of a Coast Guard Career provides an interesting story into the U.S. Coast Guard from the 1950s. Inside stories of racism, post-war Okinawa, and the development of modern Coast Guard leadership training is there in the book. His honesty allows us to laugh along with him as he mistakes a General Officer's parking space for his own, gets stuck in an invasion exercise, drives circles around DC with an oblivious Elliott Richardson riding shotgun, and arrests Jacques Cousteau for failing to file required paperwork. Richard Marcott uses very simple language in his memoir and especially his real life Sea- St This book is for any school student who wants to make a career in the military or who wants to attend one of the service academies. It is also an enjoyable as well as informative read for anyone who might have interest in different missions of the US Coast Guard. It is a memoir but reads like a novel.
