Coast Guard response crews hold a memorial ceremony during Coimbra oil recovery

Coast Guard response crews hold a memorial ceremony led by chaplain Lt. Cmdr. John Sears during oil recovery operations aboard the M/V SHELIA BORDELON. The Coast Guard discovered a significant amount of oil in cargo and fuel tanks during onsite assessments of the Coimbra in May 2019. The Coimbra sank off the coast of Long Island after a German U-boat torpedoed the ship in January 1942 killing 36 crew members. US Coast Guard photo by Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael Himes.
