Ever thought what it might be like to serve aboard a USCG ship sitting on hundreds of miles of ice shelf with only a forward gear to propel you through the waters of the North Pole?
The Coast Guard and its guardsmen have done it.
On this 20th anniversary “The Coast Guard icebreaker CGC Polar Sea and the CCCS Louis S. Ste Laurent became the first “North American surface ships” to reach the North Pole.
An HH-65A from Aviation Training Center Mobile, detached to the Polar Sea, became the first U.S. (and also Coast Guard) helicopter to reach the pole as well.” This occurred in 1994!
What Is The Polar Sea?
“Polar-class icebreakersUSCGC Polar Star (WAGB-10), USCGC Polar Sea (WAGB-11) are heavy icebreakers operated by the United States Coast Guard (USCG).
These cutters, specifically designed for open-water icebreaking, have reinforced hulls, special icebreaking bows, and a system that allows rapid shifting of ballast to increase the effectiveness of their icebreaking.
The vessels conduct Arctic and Antarctic research and are the primary icebreakers that clear the channel into McMurdo Station for supply ships. All are homeported out of Seattle, Washington.” (Source: Wikipedia)
Here is the largest ice breaking party in the world!
The backbone of the United States Coast Guard are the Chiefs! The Chiefs train and lead the Guardsmen and their messes are the meeting places where decisive decisions are made about their commands, their cutters and crews and the personnel that serve as US Guardsmen. Sector Long Island Mess for the USCG Chief’s asked for a custom design that had colorful elements including the single most identifying element: The anchors of the Chief, Senior Chief and Master Chief!
Created for the men and women of the USCG stationed at Grand Isle. Wanting elements of the storm, Lousiana, the Flir De Lis, motor life boats and life saver with station named emblazoned on it this group of Guarsdmen wanted a custom USCG shirt design specifically for them.
Lifesavers of the Crystal Coast! The USCG complement of Guardsmen made this Coast Guard design one of the year with the details like the Fort Macon lighthouse, Cape Lookout, Nautical compasses and maps along with the rates for Boatswain’s Mate and Enginemen!
Remember the Deepwater Horizon accident? Miles upon miles of Gold Coast Cleanup where the United States Coast Guard provided the most essential personnel and equipment to wage war on a fiery sub oceanic oil well blazing fire and spewing oil and devastation! The US Coast Guard asked for a custom shirt design that would help keep the morale of the hours of hours of no sleep while the pressure to put out the fire and do everything possible to stop the consuming oil spill. This design became one of the most popular and well known design throughout the USCG.
The Cape Hatteras lighthouse, the graveyard of the Atlantic, where ships are strewn about the floor of the ocean’s depths. These wrecks attempted to make landfall amidst the terryifying storms of the deep Atlantic.
All these elements and the navigational maps are displayed on this USCG rescuers t-shirt.
