BALTIMORE — The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Eagle is scheduled to arrive Saturday in Baltimore and has limited availability for media members to ride along.

Media requesting to ride along on cutter Eagle must contact the Coast Guard Public Affairs Detachment Baltimore office by email at PADETBaltimore@uscg.mil no later than 4 p.m. Tuesday to make a reservation and to receive instructions. Media will embark the Eagle from a small boat, which may be challenging for those with limited mobility.

The ride along will start at the U.S. Naval Academy. Media will need to enter the Naval Academy at gate 1, which is at the intersection of King George Street and Randall Street in Annapolis, Maryland, 21402, at 6:30 a.m. The voyage will end at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. ... Additionally, the Eagle will be open for free public tours Saturday from 1 - 5 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Constructed in 1936 by the Blohm and Voss Shipyard in Hamburg, Germany, and originally commissioned as the Horst Wessel by the German Navy, the Eagle was taken by the United States as a war reparation following World War II. ...

2. Well, I don't think the editors would let "Baltimore, Hon" be used in a title.

I'm sure the flacks are wonderful people, but editors everywhere have that darn serious side.
