HONOLULU — The Coast Guard is offering free public tours of two cutters as part of the observance of the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor at Aloha Tower in Honolulu Tuesday and Wednesday.
Wednesday the Coast Guard Silent Drill Team will also perform in front of the cutter at Aloha Tower at 2 p.m.
The Coast Guard Cutter Galveston Island, a 110-foot patrol boat, will be moored at Aloha Tower Pier 9 providing free public tours Tues. Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to noon and again from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The Coast Guard Cutter Morgenthau, a 378-foot high endurance cutter, will be moored at Aloha Tower Pier 9 providing free public tours from noon to 4 p.m.
Please come by and tour the cutter and visit with Coast Guard men and women who serve aboard before viewing the Pearl Harbor Parade.
The Galveston Island crew conducts search and rescue, law enforcement and fisheries patrols in the Main Hawaiian Islands region. The Morgenthau also conducts these missions, but frequently farther afield in Pacific Ocean and Alaskan waters. Morgenthau’s crew recently returned from an Alaskan patrol and are hosting the @USCG Instargam this week. Check it out at http://ift.tt/1opUR58 or @USCG on your app.
