The crew operates in support of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, which oversees military operations in the region.

Coast Guard`s unique powers, capabilities and missions allow us to work with partners around the world on maritime security,” said Vice Admiral Michael F. McAllister, Coast Guard Pacific Area Commander. “A strengthened presence across the Indo-Pacific strengthens our alliances and partnerships through increased interoperability, which will improve regional stability, foster a rules-based order, and improve maritime governance and security in the region and globally.” Coast Guard forces provide expertise in search and rescue missions. illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing; response to the marine environment; marine security; and humanitarian and disaster relief.

During his career, he has argued and won three precedents before the Washington State Supreme Court. James Munro died on July 7, 1993. He was diligent and active until his death. Many people will tell you they want to die “with my boots on,” and Jimmy certainly did. He was driving his lawnmower when the gear lever broke backwards and he and the lawnmower crashed down the bank and down the hill. He was a loving, understanding, tenacious and compassionate man; A proud soldier and a lifelong “public citizen”. Often described as an “old advocate and orator,” James cited the Bible or Shakespeare, bringing historical perspective to many cases. He also spent many hours “pro bono,” defending local neighbors and friends who he felt deserved legal assistance, whether they had the money or not.

Director Bill Munro has been working in Toowoomba and surrounding areas for nearly 20 years and prides himself on staying close to his community and customers. James expected to return to his unit and “go down Wilhelmstrasse” to Berlin, but he could no longer use his arm and was sent to New York on a transport ship.

There he learned that a large nerve had been severed and the extremities had died. He couldn`t use his “trigger finger.” Becca Kenna-Schenk, Director of Government and Academic Relations, Western Washington University After Pearl Harbor, Jimmy was eager to serve his country. He sat on the editorial board and took this task very seriously. In December 1942, he joined the army and was sent to the officers` school, but he fell into a ditch and broke his healing. He was declared unfit for service, demoted to private rank, and sent to a unit where the men awaited their release. They expected to be treated quickly, but that did not happen. They waited and waited, watched the war and waited for the Allied invasion. When the invasion of Normandy finally took place, many, if not most, of the young officers he trained with were killed on the beaches or in the fighting that immediately followed.

Jimmy grew up on the farm, sailed the bay and went to school at one-bedroom schools in Crystal Springs and Pleasant Beach. His older brother, John, was the island`s first contract bus driver. The Germans had trained young boys to become snipers and left them in trees or buildings to kill approaching Americans as their forces retreated. Often they were only twelve or thirteen years old. Jimmy`s siblings finished eighth grade at Island Schools and attended Queen Ann High School in Seattle. Jimmy was in first grade, attending the new Bainbridge Island High School every four years, graduating in 1928. He was part of the debate and track teams and was a Yell leader. He was also credited with suggesting the “Spartans” as the school`s mascots. According to classmate Haydon Callahan, the new school was stuck in a vote for mascots. Jimmy Munro jumped up and gave such a compelling speech that a majority of students changed their voices and the name Bainbridge SPARTANs was born.

Republican” in Kitsap County and was very popular. Although the area is a “lunch bucket” area, thousands of people were “crossing the aisle” and voting for Jimmy. He was a friendly and fun guy who always had a smile and a funny story to tell. He served as “master of ceremonies” for almost every lunch and dinner in the Kitsap area at one time or another. He devoted considerable time to civic functions and duties. He was a founding member of the Kitsap County Historical Society (life member) and has long been active in local veterans` organizations. It was an interesting time in Washington State. Workers` rights and trade unions, including university professors` unions, were hot topics.
