Coast Guard Cutter Anniversary


The 50th anniversary of the historic voyage by the US Coast Guard Cutters STORIS, BRAMBLE and SPAR, circumnavigating the North American continent from west to east for the first time, during the summer of 1957, will be celebrated at a reunion September 4 – 6, 2007, in Reno, Nevada.

This is the long anticipated combination of a reunion with the 50th anniversary of “Cutters Around the Continent.” September 6th is the exact anniversary date of the three vessels passing through Bellot Strait and starting the trip home following their history-making voyage.

Plans include a performance by the Coast Guard band and drill team and hopefully a visit from Admiral Thad Allen, USCG, Commandant of the Coast Guard.
