The Coast Guard Cutter Healy was our second adopted unit and our first vessel. That is why our newsletter masthead has featured a photo of the USCGC Healy these past years. Since its adoption, we have held an annual March, Honor the Healy Dinner Event, which is traditionally one of our most popular events. Unfortunately this past March we were forced to postpone the 6th Annual Honor the Healey Event due to changes in the deployment schedule for the vessel.
As many of you may know, the Healy has spent considerable time in dry dock these past months and has recently been going through extensive sea testing. On April 3rd it deployed on its Arctic research duties. Above is a photo of the Healy proceeding north while the Polar Sea is returning to port in Seattle after completing its deployment to Antarctica.
