Very sorry to hear of the passing of retired US #Coast Guard Vice Admiral John #Currier on 1 March at 68. He was the USCG’s 23rd Ancient Albatros, the longest-serving aviator on active duty (photos fm June 2014) and was vice commandant 2012-14. A class act. BZ and thank you sir pic.twitter.com/ktiZ30ROjQ
