Davenport, a Tacoma Class U.S. Navy Patrol Frigate that was manned by U.S. Coast Guard personnel. During 1945, she saw duty on an anti-sub patrol, as an escort for a North Atlantic convoy and as a weather ship off the coast of Newfoundland, logging more than 24,000 nautical miles at sea.

"As Coast Guardsmen, serving on a Navy ship, we have the double duty of
carrying out the highest traditions of both services.
We know what our job is. We will do it well. Together."
