Coast Guard Declares Bermuda Project Success

July 13, 2013

A recent stop by the Coast Guard barque Eagle in Bermuda resulted in a partnership with Keep Bermuda Beautiful that saw neighbourhoods cleaned and buildings repaired as the vessel’s cadets and crews lent their time during the port call.

Leaving New London on May 11, the Eagle docked in Bermuda on June 29, staying until July 2. During its stop on the island, more than 50 cadets and crew worked to clean up several areas of the island.

“Pursuing service projects in the communities we visit [is] a vital part of the training mission,” said Lt. Kristopher R. Ensley, the operations officer aboard the Eagle. “While our primary mission is to train future Coast Guard leaders, being an ambassador of goodwill to the places we visit helps to enhance the leadership experience.”

While this particula crew may have seen Bermudian shores for the last time, other Coast Guard visits to the island are planned that will see the same goodwill efforts made by those on board.
