ASAN, Guam (June 5, 2015) – U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Assateague will celebrate the 25th anniversary of its commissioning June 15 at Echo Wharf on Naval Base Guam.

Members of the public are invited for tours from noon until 4 p.m. Please wear close-toed shoes as the ship is an industrial work environment and visitors will be asked to traverse ladderwells. 

Assateague is a 110-foot Island-class Cutter and was constructed at Bollinger Machine Shop and Shipyard in Lockport, La. She is named after Assateague Island, a barrier island spanning the coasts of Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina. The cutter reports to the Coast Guard’s 14th District in Hawaii via Coast Guard Sector Guam.

Echo Wharf is located at the western end of Route 18 across from the Guam Veterans Cemetery in Piti (see attached map).
