It is with great sadness that we have lost yet another CGTA member and, to some of us, a great friend; TOO Soon! CDR Molly Waters crossed the bar on Friday from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. I won't restate the obvious, but she will be sorly missed by us and the Coast Guard with a great career still ahead. We wish her "fair winds and following seas." Also thanks to Cam & Bob for their posts.

Sandy Schwaab, Pres. CGTA

It was an honor to have worked with Mrs Waters in the past. Fair winds and following seas shipmate.

Thanks for sharing that Cam. CGTA President CWO Sandy Schwaab and I had the pleasure of attending her Change of Ceremony when she assumed command of USCGC NEAH BAY (WTGB 105) in Cleveland. About a year later, the CGTA Reunion was held in Erie, PA, and the NEAH BAY was in Erie to host part of our reunion. IIRC, November 2017, LCDR Waters was the speaker at the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps Commodore Perry Division (Toledo, OH) dinner dance. CWO Schwaab an I attended that event with our wives, and had an enjoyable evening. LCDR Waters was n inspiration to the female members of the Sea Cadet unit. Here's a Picture of Sandy, Molly, and me.
