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.

    My dad met him in Greenland at the same time his girl broke up with him. Dad said he was very nice and that he had big hands.
