We are looking for relatives/descendants of these Coast Guard men; stationed at Patos Island Light Station, Washington State. The picture was taken in the late 40s.

    Ed Larson was dad and spoke fondly of his time on Patos during WWII. Since he was in charge of the station my mother joined him on the island. Later he and mom managed Outlook Inn on Orcus along with my grandparents.
