    Coast Guard Cutter Healy conducts Arctic patrol in support of the Office of Naval Research

    ARCTIC OCEAN – U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Richard Wells pulls himself out from the Arctic Ocean during ice rescue training Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2018, about 715 miles north of Barrow, Alaska. Wells is a crew member aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Healy (WAGB-20) and participated in ice rescue training in order to qualify as a member of the ship's ice rescue team, which protects crew members and scientists conducting work in the Arctic. The Healy is underway in the Arctic with about 100 crew members and 30 scientists to deploy sensors and semi-autonomous submarines to study stratified ocean dynamics and how environmental factors affect the water below the ice surface for the Office of Naval Research. The Healy, which is homeported in Seattle, is one of two ice breakers in U.S. service and is the only military ship dedicated to conducting research in the Arctic.
