Save the Coast Guard Cutter Adak - a 9/11 memorial. #SavetheAdak
The U.S. government is preparing to give away a historic Coast Guard cutter that led the efforts to save more than 500,000 people during the tragic terror attack on the World Trade Center in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001, but President Biden can stop it from happening if we get enough support. The Coast Guard Cutter Adak is a historic ship and worthy of coming home. We have a plan in place to make the USCGC Adak into a museum to showcase Coast Guard history and to serve as a 9-11 memorial. Additionally, the ship will serve as an education platform for youth in the Tampa Bay area. It will also make trips each year to various port cities around the U.S. to showcase Coast Guard history.We have legislation prepared, pending, a congressional sponsor and bipartisan support, but we are running out of time, as the U.S. government is preparing to officially offer the cutter to Indonesia, despite our efforts. There are several other cutters that could be provided to Indonesia instead of the Adak, and we believe that the Adak needs to come home. The Adak will help to tell the story of those who did everything they could to make sure others could live on 9/11. If you believe the Coast Guard Cutter Adak should come back to the United States, please support our mission. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization called the USCGC Adak Historical Society. The mission of the organization is dedicated to promoting and preserving U.S. Coast Guard history.
