America's tall ship, the cutter Eagle, was featured on ABC's Good Morning America Thursday, July 17, as the ship made its way through New York harbor to dock at Intrepid Pier. While the ship is docked there, Eagle is open for free tours to the public from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m Friday, July 18 and Saturday, July 19.
As fans of the Coast Guard, we are quite familiar with the ship's beauty and its importance in training cadets and officer candidates in seamanship and leadership. It's fun, though, to share Eagle's good news with others who may not know the ship as well as we do.
If you've ever served, or spent time on Eagle we'd love to hear from you in the comments section.
