USCGC Anthony Petit Headed for Ketchikan

Monday, November 15, 1999
USCGC Anthony Petit has been accepted from its builder, Marinette Marine Corp. of Marinette, Wis., and its crew sailed north from the Panama Canal to reach its homeport of Ketchikan, Alaska, by mid-November. The USCG accepted the vessel and placed it into a commission special status for its 12,000-mile voyage to Alaska. Petit's commanding officer, Chief Warrant Officer Chuck Jones, and his crew of 23 made several port calls and conducted several operational missions in the 100 days since they left Wisconsin. Before departing the Great Lakes through the Welling Canal, the crew earned the "Order of the Great Lakes" by sailing on all five of the Great Lakes. While visiting Coast Guard City USA, Grand Haven, Mich., on Coast Guard Day, Petit's crew welcomed more than 12,000 visitors aboard.
