The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Healy crew returned to Coast Guard Base Seattle on November 21, 2017, just in time for Thanksgiving! They had been on a five-month science research deployment to the Arctic.

The Cutter Healy, which travels to the Arctic yearly, departed on June 27, 2017 with about 85 Coast Guardsmen and 40 scientists. It made multiple trips to and from the Arctic Circle, stopping in multiple Alaskan port cities to swap out scientists and gather supplies.
