Short Bio: In July 1942 Mature attempted to enlist in the U.S. Navy but was rejected for color blindness. He enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard after taking a different eye test the same day. He was assigned to the icebreaker Storis (WMEC-38), in Boston Harbor, which was doing Greenland patrol work (28 Nov 1942). After 14 months aboard the Storis, Mature was promoted to the rate of Chief Boatswain’s Mate.
