Coast Guard Flotilla Celebrates 50 Years of Partnership with Station Yankeetown






 



 

In appreciation for their service in guarding and protecting our maritime area, members of Yankeetown's US Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 15-2 presented the active duty members of Station Yankeetown a limited edition print of the US Coast Guard Cutter Eagle. The current Eagle is the 6th in a line of Coast Guard Cutters named Eagle reaching back to 1792 when afterward for several years Hamilton’s Revenue-Marine Service was the only Navy the fledging United States had. Presenting the picture to Station Chief Robert Whitmore and Boatswain's Mate1 Chris Kohl is Flotilla Commander Leslie Moore and Vice Commander John Caddigan. Station Yankeetown serves the coastal waters from Hernando Beach to Steinhatchee. Day, night, rain or shine they're on duty 24/7. Law Enforcement, Search and Rescue, and Environmental Protection are among the duties they routinely perform. This January Yankeetown Coast Guard Auxiliary celebrates 50 continuous years of assistance to the homeland security missions of the Coast Guard. When you see them on the water wave and say “Howdy.”
