Brickmuppet, this one's for you. Why am I showing this Coastie as a mystery ship? What's so important?
Remember folks, no cheating!
Oh, and given the date I suspect this is that cutter which participated in That Fateful Battle©.

For the US, the war did not begin until the first Sunday in December 1941. On that day the USCGC Taney, was present across from 'Battleship Row'. Like many other US vessels that day, Taney fought back aganst the surprise attack, and being fitted with salvage and rescue equipment assisted other ships that had been stricken and personnel in the water. Taney is unique in one respect though, after a long war in three oceans and four subsequent decades of service saving lives and fighting in twomore wars, the Coast Guard Cutter Taney is today the only vessel still afloat that was present during the Attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.
She can bee seen today as a museum ship at Inner Harbor, Baltimore Maryland.

The Taney is the final combatant from Pearl still afloat.

I was always a bit more partial to USCGC Ingham of all the Treasury cutters, in no small part due to her participation in HX229/SC122, but all the Treasury-class had long, full, and active careers.
