NEWS Capital City Weekly 50th Statehood bronze medallions were presented by Capital City Celebrations board members Jackie Honeywell-Walden (left) and Kathy Hildre to Captain David Vaghn and the crew of the USCGC Polar Sea during the cutter's recent stop in Juneau. The Polar Sea was returning to its Seattle home port from a 100-day deployment in northern waters, including 60 days above the Arctic Circle. The medallion presentation was a way for Juneau to thank the Coast Guard for the important role it has played in Alaska's history and in ensuring the safety of its citizens.
