Captain Steven J. Craig (ret.) tells the story of the grounding and rescue of the USCG Cutter Jarvis on its maiden voyage to Alaska in 1972.  Craig tells the story of the namesake of the cutter, Lt David Jarvis and his 1897 rescue of icebound whalers in Alaska and then the story of the 1972 Cutter Jarvis grounding. A Japanese fishing trawler came to the rescue in the best tradition of the sea.  The Captain also talks about the USCG as a service and his 38 years in the service with host Jim Fausone.  The Military Writers Society of America award-winning book that tells the story is "All Present and Accounted For - the 1972 Alaska Grounding of the USCG Cutter Jarvis, Heroic Efforts that Saved the Ship."
