" The Coast Guard Academy Class of 1962 worked with Tony for over a decade
as we planned and executed our historic murals project. Tony's realistic
depiction of Coast Guard missions and rescues have met with universal enthusiasm
and praise from the Coast Guard community. The paintings, some as large as 80
square feet, are seen daily by Academy cadets for whom they were developed.
Staff and visitors to the Academy also enjoy the paintings regularly.
Tony's work ethic and commitment to excellence made us proud to be associated
