Description

In this article Yeomans examines the deteriorating state of the U.S. Coast Guard through the example of the Heather Lynne II, a small fishing boat that capsized in 1996, drowning its three crew members. The Coast Guard was blamed for negligence on their part because it took nearly two hours to reach the drowned men; the Coast Guard has constantly stated that its resources are stretched too thin to adequately perform its duties; in 1996 the agency's size had been cut by 4,000 people and it's budget by $400 million.
