Tribute Tuesday: Today we pay tribute to the “one of the best surfmen on this part of the coast of North Carolina, (stated by 1st Lt. Charles Shoemaker, a Revenue Cutter Service officer), Capt. Richard Etheridge, who was the first African-American to command a Life-Saving station when he was appointed as keeper of the Pea Island Life-Saving Station on January 24, 1880. In 1896, the men of Pea Island performed the Gold Life-Saving Medal rescue of the passengers and crew of the wrecked schooner E.S. Newman. To continue our tribute and honor to Etheridge&#39;s legacy to our service a cutter was named after him, the U. S. Coast Guard Cutter RICHARD ETHERIDGE Read more about Richard Etheridge and his legacy on Coast Guard Compass blog; <a href="http://coastguard.dodlive.mil/2010/10/coast-guard-heroes-richard-etheridge/" target="_blank">http://coastguard.dodlive.mil/2010/10/coast-guard-heroes-richard-etheridge/</a>

The U.S. Coast Guard has many diverse missions, like search and rescue, but one of our many missions is to protect our ocean environment and living marine life by enforcing domestic and international fisheries laws. Recently, the US Coast Guard Cutter Bernard C. Webber crew did just that when they conducted a boarding approximately 2 miles east of Lake Worth Inlet and issued a fisheries violation to enforce our domestic fisheries laws and regulations. Our nation&#39;s living marine resources are valuable to our nation and our Coast Guard crews will continue to enforce the laws and regulations for marine safety and for protecting the nation&#39;s living marine resources. We would like to remind ALL mariners to read, follow and abide by all federal, state and international fisheries laws and regulations. For more information on fisheries laws and regulations visit National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) fisheries website <a href="http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/laws/" target="_blank">http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/laws/</a>
