Coast Guard Cutter Eagle visits Astoria – Video

ASTORIA, Ore. – The Coast Guard Cutter Eagle is escorted up the Columbia River by 47-foot motor lifeboat crews from Station Cape Disappointment and the National Motor Lifeboat School Thursday.

The Eagle arrived after spending 17 days at sea while transiting from San Diego, Calif., and being underway for over two months since departing homeport in New London, Conn.

The Eagle’s crew has spent the past 34 days training more than 130 Coast Guard Academy cadets and Naval Academy midshipmen.

The Eagle has served as a floating classroom to future Coast Guard officers since 1946 offering fundamental leadership, teamwork and seamanship skills.

    I will be flying in to Seattle to see Tall Ships Tacoma and woulld like to drive down the coast to Astoria if the Eagle will be there on the return trip. Could you please tell me if the Eagle will be returning to Astoria on the way back to California.
    Thank You,
    PS: I was born and raised in New London,Ct, and used to play on the Eagle when I was a kid and went to meet my dad who was in the Band.
    I’ve seen the Eagle in many places and will keep doing so as long as I am able.

    GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD
