Coast Guard Cutter Abbie Burgess returns to Rockland, Maine


BOSTON — The crew of Coast Guard Cutter Abbie Burgess returned to its homeport of Rockland, Maine, Wednesday after a 37-day patrol to the Great Lakes region in support of Operation Fall Retrieve.
During the patrol, Abbie Burgess' crew assisted in efforts to remove or replace 1,219 seasonal aids to navigation in the 9th Coast Guard District area of responsibility.
The crew also serviced two Canadian weather buoys.
Abbie Burgess transited through the St. Lawrence Seaway, making stops in Montreal, Buffalo, New York and Cleveland.
"Although it was an unusually long trip for a cutter this size, I think the whole crew saw the benefits to our shipmates in District Nine," said Chief Warrant Officer Michael Bollinger, commanding officer of Abbie Burgess. "It was an amazing journey, both accomplishing the mission and growing together as a crew. The morale of the crew during the patrol was phenomenal, and the amount of support provided by everyone in District Nine was incredible."
Abbie Burgess is a 175-foot coastal buoy tender with primary missions of maintaining aids-to-navigation and light ice breaking, and is named after a heroic lighthouse keeper from Rockland, Maine.
