The United States Coast Guard Cutter Mellon arrives in Kodiak, AK.  The Mellon is currently homeported in Seattle, WA. She once was homeported at Base Sand Island, Oahu, HI before swapping with the Cutter Munro. Alaska scenery provides spectacular backdrops for the cutters and the cutters have an important history in Alaskan waters. Many a periled fisherman and mariner have the USCG to thank for their lives.
