    An enjoyable, moderately paced reconstruction of the events where you begin to wonder, “would I have survived this ordeal.” Well worth picking this book up, especially for those from around the northeast region.

    Every time I see something about this incident it makes me aware of some greater power that takes over and allows a positive outcome. Call it whatever you want to but it is there at times like this that make the impossible possible.
    I served with John Sosinski in the USCG in 1964 wonder if they are related.
