>Poem – Unknown Author


As we depart the Bering Sea and begin our trip across the Gulf of Alaska…

A poem from an unknown author:

Full many a sailor points with pride
To cruises o’er the ocean wide;
But they cannot compare with me,
For I have sailed the Bering Sea.

While though you’ve weathered fiercest gale
And every ocean you have sailed;
You cannot a salty sailor be
Until you’ve sailed the Bering Sea.

From CDR Andy Sugimoto, Coast Guard Cutter ACUSHNET (WMEC 167) Commanding Officer
