A-Z Solomon's Compass Style: Susquehanna
Welcome A-Z bloggers!
And everyone else, of course :)
My A-Z posts are all about my new book, SOLOMON'S COMPASS.
Read the A post to learn who AJ is.
That would be the USCGC Susquehanna.
The United States Coast Guard Cutter Susquehanna.
Oh, this is AJ, btw.
In our story of SOLOMON'S COMPASS, Taylor Campbell is captain of the Susquehanna.
Carol said I have to tell you that in the real world there is no Coast Guard cutter named Susquehanna, but like the Point Boats on P Day, it is an amalgamation of the 13 Famous Class cutters.
One of the Famous Class cutters is the Campbell. As in Taylor Campbell. Carol also said I have to tell you that choosing Taylor's last name was no accident. This is the Campbell.
The Famous Class cutters all have the same construction, meaning all of them look like this one, from the Wiki Commons, being replenished by a Navy helicopter.
You can find more information and a list of the Famous Class cutters here. And more information about the Campbell here. They all have interesting histories, but the Campbell's is especially interesting.
Since it's A-Z and you may only have time for pictures, check these on the USCGC Mohawk page. The Mohawk is one of the Campbell's Famous Class sister ships - like the Susquehanna.
