United States Coast Guard Office of Law Enforcement, U.S. Government —  Petty Officer Travis Obendorf (BM3) succumbed to injuries sustained one month earlier while participating in a search and rescue mission of a disabled fishing vessel in the Bering Sea, 30 miles north of Amak Island, Alaska.

He was injured while recovering the small boat after transferring the first group of passengers from the disabled vessel to the Coast Guard Cutter Waesche. He was immediately flown to Cold Bay, Alaska, and then transferred to a hospital in Anchorage, Alaska. He was transferred a second time to a hospital in Seattle, Washington, where he remained until succumbing to his injuries.
