Lillian Skinner and Charlotte Shinner, the daughters of Petty Officer Jack Skinner, a boatswains mate aboard Coast Guard Cutter Polar Star, hold out their welcome home signs in preparation for the arrival of their father who has been on a 108-day deployment to Antarctica, March 21, 2014. Having completed a reactivation that began four years ago, this deployment marks the first time in six years that a U.S. icebreaker has supported Operation Deep Freeze, the U.S. Antarctic Program’s resupply efforts of McMurdo Station.
