Visit to Dublin of the USCG "Willow"

Just outside Dublin at the seaport of Dun Laoghaire (Dun Leary) a festival is held on the 4th of July to celebrate American Independance Day. This year during the visit of the US Coast Guard Cutter "Willow" under the Command of Lt.Cdr.Fred White, members of the Irish Naval Association were invited to board the Willow for a sea trip to experience the daily routine of the Willow.

It was a very interesting experience to meet the Officers, NCO'S and ratings and to see the amount of technical equipment onboard for aids to navigation, drugs and fishery protection.
We extend our best wishes to both Cdr. Glenn of the US Coast Cutter "Tahoma" and Lt. Cdr. White of the USCGC "Willow" and to their crews.
