HAIL TO THE HEALY
While all the squawking and rustling continued in the nation’s capital, the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Healy arrived at the North Pole on Saturday, becoming the first U.S. surface ship to do so unaccompanied, and only the fourth time a U.S. surface vessel has ever reached the spot. The 145 crew and passengers departed Dutch Harbor, Alaska on Aug. 9 aboard the high-latitude research vessel and ice breaker which measures 420-feet long, weighs 16,000 tons and boasts 30,000-horsepower.
