Welcome to the fleet, Coast Guard Cutter Kathleen Moore!
Posted by LT Stephanie Young, Monday, May 12, 2014

The Coast Guard welcomed the newest fast response cutter to the fleet this weekend as Coast Guard Cutter Kathleen Moore was commissioned in Key West, Fla.

The cutter is named after Coast Guard heroine Kathleen “Kate” Moore, keeper of the Black Rock Harbor Light on Fayerweather Island, a small seaside community south of Bridgeport, Conn. She served for 72 years and is officially credited with saving 21 lives. When she retired from service in 1878 at the age of 84 and was asked about her saves, Moore said, “I wish it had been double that number.”

Commencing missions under active service, the cutter’s crew will now take on operations in the 7th Coast Guard District’s 1.8 million square nautical miles of ocean.
