Kevin Lynch Landed Massachusetts Army National Guard Helicopter at Boston Light

Comments: In preparation to sling-load an antique anchor and buoy from a USCG Cutter to the island. The island is a National Park in Boston's outer harbor. The USCG Helicopter could not pick up the weight of the anchor, so they asked the National Guard. Sally Snowman, the lighthouse keeper, gave us a wonderful, in-depth tour of the islands and lighthouse. She also gave tours to my family at a later date.
