CG Cutter Alex Haley welcomes Adak students aboard for tour of ship

In this May 10 photo, the crew of the Kodiak-based Coast Guard Cutter Alex Haley, give a tour to a class of Adak students. Here they check out a deployable small boat attached to the cutter.

The Alex Haley (WMEC 39) was named for the author of ‘Roots” and is a 282-foot, Medium-Endurance cutter. The ship is used for fisheries and law enforcement and Search and Rescue in Alaska waters.

Students were also provided a tour of the Alex Haley itself, and a brief glimpse into life aboard a Coast Guard cutter in Alaska. Photo courtesy U.S. Coast Guard/Petty Officer 3rd Class Lauren Dean.
