We toured this ship while in Key West on a cruise The ship was easy to find, being right across from where our ship docked. The self-guided tour was educational and well laid out. The ship appears ready to sail at any moment, just needs a crew. Speaking with the lady who took our admission, I was surprised to learn that the Coast Guard has no connection to the ship now, and a very small group of people are responsible for the upkeep and care of the ship. I highly recommend the tour to anyone who is interested in World War II history, as the ship played a big part in the war, both as an escort ship and in invasions. Go to see her, and help these dedicated volunteers preserve a valiant warrior from our past.
