PORT HURON, Mich. — The Coast Guard cutter Hollyhock's recent mission was filled with gingerbread cookies and giggles.
Crew members took the 255-foot ship out into lower Lake Huron to retrieve the buoys that protect the ships traveling through the area. Crew members also retrieved time with their spouses and children.
The Dec. 20 mission was gathering buoys and gathering families together, according to the Times Herald of Port Huron.
Alexander Berry, 10 years old, had an essential role in both parts of the endeavor.
