Ketchikan, Alaska was recently named “A Coast Guard City”, in recognition of the community’s support of Coast Guardsmen and their families.
Ketchikan joins Kodiak and Sitka as the third city in Alaska to be designated “A Coast Guard City.”
The six Ketchikan-based Coast Guard units are Coast Guard Base Ketchikan, Coast Guard Cutter Anthony Petit, Coast Guard Cutter Naushon, Coast Guard Cutter Chandeleur, Station Ketchikan, and Marine Safety Detachment Ketchikan.
The Coast Guard City program began in 1998 endorsed by both Congress and the Coast Guard to recognize the support Coast Guard personnel receive from a city.
