Leaving the Santa Monica Pier I came across Lori in Los Angeles California who shared with me that she was with the USCG from 79-84 during a time when she thought all was going well in life. She told me that her husband was cheating on her and attempted to introduce her into what she describes as a group call “sex invest”. She told me that in an attempt to save her marriage she joined the group with her husband. She told me that once she joined that she as a part of the initiation you had to provide ID once in as a way to hold your identity over your head. She said the group communicates via large group text. She said her goal every day is to tell people what is going on that people don’t talk about. She said that her freedom and what gives her peace is coming down to the pier overlooking the water reminding her of her good times with the US Coast Guard! She told me to share her story.
