PO Luckey received the medal for his voluntary and extraordinary act of heroism when he responded to a tragic car accident and rescued a 5-year-old girl who was stuck in the car just before the fuel tank exploded.

  • Coast Guard responded to a call for help from a 118-foot sailboat that ran aground in Woods Hole pass yesterday. Guardians rescued 10 people off the ship while six crewmembers remained onboard to assist in the rescue. Coast Guard units tried to free the boat but the currents were too strong. A commercial tug eventually freed the ship and towed it to Martha’s Vineyard.
