Pic of the Day – Storm Hits USCGC Eagle

ATLANTIC OCEAN – Kathryn Lamphere, a fourth class cadet at the Coast Guard Academy, braces herself against the side of the Coast Guard Cutter Eagle as a large wave crashes against the ship, May 9, 2011. The Eagle was hit by a storm that had moved up the Gulf Stream into the path of Eagle, which had already been in another low-pressure system after setting sail.
