|15k||Charles Satterlee (14 September 1875 - 26 September 1918) was an officer in the United States Coast Guard during World War I. Born in Essex, Connecticut, Satterlee was appointed a cadet in the Revenue Cutter Service on 19 November 1895. In 1908, he was assigned as supervisor of anchorages at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. This duty included command of the cutter, Machinate. In 1909, he was ordered to Tahoma, then fitting out at Baltimore, Maryland, for a cruise to the Pacific. From 1910 to 1913, he was assistant inspector of lifesaving stations; and, on 1 September 1915, he was promoted to Captain in the Coast Guard. Captain Satterlee was in command of the cutter, Tampa, when that vessel was torpedoed and sunk with all hands on 26 September 1918 in the Bristol Channel while escorting a convoy.||Bill Gonyo|
