Musher Ken Anderson commemorates one of the greatest Coast Guard rescues

Coast Guard sponsored Iditarod musher Ken Anderson could be headed toward a top five finish in the 2010 Iditarod. After starting in 51st position and being as far back as 19th as late as Cripple, Alaska, Anderson departed Koyuk in 4th place. Anderson’s Coast Guard sponsored run is reminiscent of another Coast Guard dogsled race in the late-1800’s.
