USCGC IROQUOIS
AGROUND !

On June 29th, 1954 the Iroquois was standing off Midway awaiting a Navy Pilot to bring them through the reef lined channel. Once aboard, the Pilot took control of the vessel and she slowly inched her way inbound. A few minutes later she struck the reef and was firmly aground, taking on water. Efforts to pull her free by the Navy were unsucessful and most of the crew were evacuated ashore. A handful of volunteers remained aboard to control the flooding and keep her afloat. Several days later she was freed and towed to Honolulu. Once the full extent of her damage was realized she was towed to the Coast Guard Yard at Curtis Bay MD and placed in "special status", ultimately being declared a total loss and sold for scrap. My friend George Brenegan (then Fireman Apprentice) was one of the volunteers that stayed with the ship. ______________________________________________________________
