The Japanese invaded two islands, Attu and Kiska, in the Alaskan archipelago in 1942 - mostly to annoy and divert the U.S. A year later, Attu was taken back in a sharp 18-day battle; Kiska was abandoned. Operations in the ALeutians were hampered by incessantly foul weather. Fortunately, a Catalina flying boat was uniquely equipped to land on this snow-covered runway.

Coast Guard Mascots Go to War

Sinbad, the Coast Guard's most famous mascot. He was adopted by a crewman from the cutter Campbell prior to World War II. He was so beloved by the crew that they actually enlisted him in the Coast Guard. Sinbad served faithfully through thick and thin, surviving combat with the Germans and Japanese, causing a few international incidents with his antics, and even having a book written about him! Here he is at his battle station on board the Campbell, ready to take aim at a German U-boat!

In the early 1940s the Aleutian Campaign was news throughout the U.S. , as some of the islands in the North Pacific, in what was then the American territory of Alaska, had been invaded and occupied by Japanese troops. Ultimately, long before the war was over, the Japanese were routed from the islands they did occupy. But Allied casualties (U.S. and Canadian) during the year-long campaign to push them off of American territory were in the thousands.
