In 1940 World War II was apparent, so Ed Trettin enlisted in the United States Coast Guard, serving on the cutter the USS Ingham. He would travel over 700,000 miles on that most decorated vessel in the Coast Guard fleet. Little did he know that by following orders “seek and destroy” all subs who would be following the convoys and to “search and rescue” survivors would lead him decades later to one man he had pulled from the icy Atlantic. After all he had rescued many, many men from sunken ships during the war.
