Servicemen reunited after 26 years apart

December 26, 2011

Not many servicemen or women have the distinction of serving in two branches of the armed services within a 48-hour period.
The late Jack Seabloom had such an opportunity.
One morning in 1946, Seabloom was called in for a special mission. His superiors dismissed him from the Army with an honorable discharge and, minutes later, inducted him into the U.S. Coast Guard.
"There was a ship that was just moving in circles. Apparently, the crew had fallen asleep. It had gotten turned around and almost collided. They wanted him to go wake (the crew) up, " said his wife, Michelle Seabloom.
