Naval Militia Trains on the Hudson River

The crew of New York Naval Militia Patrol Boat 440 prepare to dock at Schodack Island State Park during a training mission on the Hudson River on June 2, 2008.
The crew of the boat, the most modern in the Naval Militia inventory, took the boat from New York harbor, where it normally operates in conjunction with the United States Coast Guard, to the Port of Albany and back to familiarize themselves with the river.
The Naval Militia, an element of the New York State Military Forces which conducts maritime operations, has 12 boats that can provide support to civil authorities and conduct security missions on New York waterways. Members of the Naval Militia belong to the Navy, Marine and Coast Guard reserves and agree to do state duty as well.
PB 440 is routinely used to ferry United States Coast Guard boarding crews to cargo vessels waiting to enter New York harbor.
Coming upriver gives the crew a chance to practice their skilsl and familiarize themselves with a different operating area if they needto conduct missions there, explained Commander Don McKnight, the Office-in-Charge of the Naval Militia's Military Emergency Boat Service.
