A Journey With America's Queen
A Tour Aboard USCGC STORIS (WMEC-38) The "Queen" of the Fleet
by Galen Varon
From her beginnings as a heavily armed supply ship built in support of World War II, to being the Oldest Commissioned Cutter in the U.S. Coast Guard which bore the prestigious title as the ‘Queen of the Fleet’, the USCGC STORIS (WMEC-38) has earned her rightful place in maritime history as well a spot on the National Park Service’s Registry of National Historic Places. Join former STORIS crewman Galen Varon as he provides a vivid account of his two-year tour aboard the STORIS from 1996 to 1998. Chronicling daily life in Kodiak to cooking in the merciless Bering Sea, you won’t want to miss this journey of a lifetime.
