D17 commander visits USCG Bering Sea Patrol Monument

Rear Adm. Thomas Ostebo and Rear Adm. Fred Kenny visit the USCG Bering Sea Patrol Monument August 2011. This monument is located at Dutch Harbor in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands. It was dedicated by the Coast Guard and people of Alaska on our service’s bicentennial, Aug. 4, 1990. It is a tribute to the Bering Sea Patrol – those United States Revenue Cutter Service sailors who sacrificed much for Alaska and their nation. U.S. Coast Guard photo by Capt. Craig Lloyd.
