Wesley Thorsson's Life

I was born at an early age in Cliffside, New Jersey on October 9, 1922.

I was always interested in a nautical life, influenced by neighbors retired from the Navy.

I was in the boy scout and became a sea scout.

I became a Cadet in the U. S. Coast Guard in 1942 after missing out by about 7 spaces in 1941 and attending Brooklyn Polytech for a year.


I graduated in 1944 in the class of 1945 which graduated a year early due to WW2 .

I met Betty in 1941 while on vacation in Rutland Vermont where my parents were living.


Betty and I were married on July 1,1944 in Proctor, Vermont where her parents were living.
