Captain of the Port

Record #:
During the Second World War, the U.S. Coast Guard was responsible for enforcing and controlling the movement of vessels in various ports and in-land waters. In 1942, Lieutenant N.H. Church was assigned as Captain of the Port of Morehead City. All vessels moving in local waters were required to carry a license or identification card issued by the Captain of the Port; Church sent various reports to the U.S. Coast Guard in 1943 and 1944 documenting local vessel traffic. These reports address topics including submarine patrols, local waters under surveillance, vessels ashore, and escaped naval mines.
