Elizabeth City, North Carolina - On Thursday, US Coast Guardsmen will be honored for their heroic rescue of the crew of the HMS Bounty.
Fourteen members of the Bounty crew were saved when the ship started sinking during Hurricane Sandy last year.
The Coast Guard members risked their lives to pull the crew to safety 90 miles southeast of Hatteras.
One crew member and the captain died in the wreck.
The ceremony to honor the Coast Guard heroes will be held tonight at the Kermit E. White Center in Elizabeth City.
