Les Pendleton the Bridges At Union Point

Les Pendleton the Bridges At Union Point


Few people ever face the choice of risking their own life to save others. Jim Harrison grew up in New Bern, North Carolina on the banks of the Neuse River. His great loves were the sea, sailboats and Kay Burwell. He became one the Coast Guard’s most highly decorated rescue swimmers. He and Kay loved one another since they were kids and dreamed of a life together. Mother Nature had another plan for Jimmy. One fateful night on the Trent River bridge, a car carrying Kay’s boss and wife careened over the railing and into the dark river. Without hesitation Jim dove in to save them. This act of selflessness cost him dearly. In the blink of an eye his world fell apart. Fate intervened again and presented him with the chance to undertake his most difficult rescue. It was an action that would forever alter his life and rock the foundations of the small town he called home. He lived a life of sacrifice and service that exemplified the motto of the Coast Guard rescue swimmers…’So others may live.’
