Coast Guard Cutter Eagle passes Whidbey

South Enders got a treat as the Coast Guard Cutter Eagle sailed past Maxwelton Beach on Whidbey Island on Monday, July 7. The Eagle was originally commissioned in 1936 by Germany. Taken as a war prize by the U.S. in 1946, it was renamed by the Coast Guard as the Barque Eagle. For the past six decades, the ship has been a training vessel for Coast Guard officers. - David Welton / The Record
