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.
