U.S. Coast Guard Tall Ship Eagle pulls into San Diego bay
The United States Coast Guard's Tall Ship Eagle pulls into San Diego bay May 23, 2008 during a west coast visit. The Eagle, the only square-rigged sailing ship in United States government service, was originally commissioned the Horst Wessel in 1936 by Nazi Germany where it was one of three training ships used to train navy cadets. Taken as a war prize by the United States in 1946 and renamed, the Eagle now allows the Coast Guard's future officers to apply the navigation, engineering, and leadership training they receive in classes at the Coast Guard Academy to real-life challenges on the sea.
