West Brunswick graduate among those aiding in Coast Guard rescue

-A A +A
By Staff Brunswick Beacon

At about 3 a.m. on March 23, Easter morning, the Alaska Ranger, a fishing vessel with 47 people on board, started to take on water. As they prepared to evacuate the ship, the U.S. Coast Guard ship stationed in Alaska, was sent to help.

Jon Smith, a 2007 West Brunswick High School graduate, was a member of the crew who helped rescue 42 people that day.

Smith, a 19-year-old Longwood native, was involved in JROTC at WBHS for three and a half years and knew he wanted to join the military right after graduation.
