ALCOAST 408/18 – DEC 2018 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LOSS OF USCGC WHITE ALDER
In 1829 on December 7, 1968, Coast Guard Cutter White Alder collided with motor vessel Helena, a 455-foot Taiwanese freighter, near a 550 yard-wide bend in the Mississippi River called the Bayou Goula Bend. Within less than a minute, White Alder sank in 75 feet of water taking the lives of all but three of her 20 person crew. 14 members remain entombed in the sunken cutter at the bottom of the Mississippi to this day.
