17-Year-Old Negro Youths Urged to Join These Warriors in U. S. Coast Guard
Seeking the voluntary enlistment of 1,700 Negro youths in the Steward’s
Mate Branch, U. S. Coast Guard Headquarters this week called attention
to the fact that the 17-year-old volunteers in this branch will also get a
crack at the enemy. At left (top and bottom) Coast Guardsman Browning
Lutter, steward’s mate third class, of 4401 South Parkway, Chicago, 111.,
is shown making the flash change from galleyman to gun-talker when
general quarters alarm is sounded aboard his Coast Guard assault trans
port somewhere in the South Pacific. At the right, Coast Guardsman Ex
cell McGee, seaman first class, of 6222 Eberhart Street, Chicago, does a
quick change from his job in his ship’s tailor shop to his battle station as
a stretcher bearer in sick bay. At top center, Steward’s Mates James

1766 Llewellyn Avenue, Baltimore, are shown with three other members
of their 20 mm. anti-aircraft gun crew aboard a Coast Guard assault trans
port in the South Pacific. Below, two other fighting Coast Guardsmen,
Coxvain John Wyatt (left), 3430 Hickory Street, St. Louis, Mo., and
Gunner’s Mate Sterling Parker, 513 South 6th Street, Camden, N. J., help
themselves to generous portions when “Chow Down’’ rings over their
combat cutter in the sub-Arctic. Seventeen-year-old Negro youths who
want a real crack at the enemy were urged to visit their local Coast
Guard Recruiting Offices immediately.
