Coast Guard Cutter SPAR forges bonds of goodwill during visit with Port Lions, Alaska, community

While servicing aids to navigation and conducting maritime law enforcement operations in Marmot Bay near Kodiak, Alaska, the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter SPAR paid a visit to the native village of Port Lions, AK. This is believed to be the first visit by a Coast Guard cutter to the village since its establishment after the Good Friday earthquake of 1964.
