Telling the stories of heroes among us in Northern Ohio

Jun 13, 2023

Petty Officer Nathaniel Howard, a Boatswain's Mate Second Class based at the United States Coast Guard Station Cleveland Harbor was off-duty and out to dinner with his girlfriend (soon-to-be fiance') when he was unexpectedly pressed into action.  He rescued a wife and husband who were floating helplessly in the rushing Cuyahoga River in April, 2022.  It's as much a cautionary tale as it is a harrowing story that would likely have had a much different outcome had Petty Officer Hoaward taken his girlfirend somewhere else for dinner that night!
