USCGC Bertholf Tour

     This past Friday, MAST faculty, staff, parents and students had the opportunity to tour the Coast Guard's newest cutter and first in the new Legend class, the USCGC Bertholf.  The 418 foot cutter was absolutely amazing.  DC3 Russell lead us on a tour that included the flight deck and hangars, crew accommodations, damage control areas, and the bridge.  We even got the chance to meet with the ship's captain, Captain Stadt.  The vessel was truly magnificent.  he view from the bridge and to see the technology involved in running such a ship was impressive.  It was an extraordinary experience for MAST Academy.  In addition, three USCG JROTC cadets and Chief Lasseter had he opportunity to be aboard as the ship left the Port of Miami on Saturday.  I cannot wait to hear about their experience of actually getting underway on the USCGC Bertholf!  (Click on he post title to see the USCGC Bertholf's homepage)
