Scuttlebutt Mini Pod: USCGC Escanaba

Scuttlebutt’s first ever Mini Pod! In less than 10 minutes, learn about some of what the Coast Guard was contributing to World War II and dig a little bit deeper into the USCGC Escanaba, one of the three Coast Guard vessels escorting the convoy on the night the USAT Dorchester was sunk.

Four Chaplains Month is Scuttlebutt’s first ever multi-part special. Join us as we dive into the world of Chaplains past, present, and future as we tell the tale of the USAT Dorchester and learn much, much, more about the Chaplain Corps.
