>All Weather Aids to Navigation servicing onboard USCGC WILLIAM TATE


Facing the elements of nature on the exposed buoy deck of WILLIAM TATE and other buoy tenders, the hard working crews embody a motto of another Federal Agency- the US Postal Service. “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” 
Pictured above, the crew of the WILLIAM TATE works in the Elk River on 07 January 2010 to complete more AtoN Seasonal Reliefs.
