Beverly Kelley

Captain, US Coast Guard

First woman to command a Coast Guard cutter ship.

In April 1979, Beverly became the first woman to command a Coast Guard cutter, the USCGC Cape Newhagen. Two years earlier, the Coast Guard experimented with assigning women to sea-going ships. The high-endurance Coast Guard cuttersMorgenthau and Gallatin received 10 enlisted women and two female officers each.  Twenty years later, she made history again as the first female to command a Coast Guard medium-endurance cutter, the USCGC Northland.
