Cover USCG Eagle (Coast

Cover USCG Eagle (Coast Guard Photo) The USCGC Eagle (WIX-327) (formerly the SSS Horst Wessel) is a 295-foot (90 m) barque used as a training cutter for future officers of the United States Coast Guard. She is the only active commissioned sailing vessel, and one of only two commissioned sailing vessels along with the USS Constitution, in American military service. Each summer, Eagle deploys with cadets from the United States Coast Guard Academy and candidates from the Officer Candidate School for periods ranging from a week to two months. These voyages fulfill multiple roles; the primary mission is training the cadets and officer candidates, but the ship also performs a public relations role for the Coast Guard and the United States. Often, Eagle makes calls at foreign ports as a goodwill ambassador. Built as the German training vessel Horst Wessel in 1936, it served to train German sailors in sail techniques until decommissioned at the start of World War II. Given anti-aircraft armament, it was re-commissioned in 1942. At the end of the war, Horst Wessel was taken by the U.S. as war reparations. 4 Must-See Real Estate www.hertfordncrealestate.com Auctions Scan the code with your tablet or smartphone to take a virtual tour of these properties: 1 2 ON-SITE: 107 Robin Drive Plymouth, NC 27962 Tuesday, August 18, 2015 at 7pm Lovely 4 BR/2.5 BA home with only one owner!
