Storis paves the way

America’s Queen: Coast Guard Cutter Storis

Coast Guard Cutter Storis is truly a magnificent ship. The accomplishments in her service record have secured her a permanent place in Coast Guard, American and maritime history. This fact was recently evidenced in December 2012 when the National Park Service officially listed her in the National Register of Historic Places.
To put this listing into perspective, there have been more than 1,567 commissioned cutters to serve in the Revenue Marine, Revenue Cutter Service and U.S. Coast Guard. Out of all of these cutters, Storis now joins Eagle, Ingham, Mclane and Taney as the only five non-tenders to be listed as National Historic Places.
