    I was fortunate enough to serve on Eagle during my early enlistment in the Coast Guard in 1978. We sailed without any cadets from Long Beach, CA to the CG Academy in New London, CT. We had stops in Panama while goig through the Panama Canal, Jamaica, Ft Lauderdale and arrived in New London. Unortunately right out of basic training and being young you do not realize what a great opportunity it was at the time. As I look back I have a few memories of the trip including some pretty bad tropical weather we sailed through. I have kept in touch with a retired Chief Warrant Officer by the name of Red Shannon who was the sail master on board back in 1978. When I retired as a Chief Warrant Officer in 2007 I made sure he was invited and he did attend which was an honor. If anyone is in Aruba and the ship is open for tours, take the time and go see it or if it is in one of the other ports this summer. It is a nice way for young cadets to learn seamanship and work as a team especially when bracing the sails.
