While on a mission, towing the submarine USS Sennet (SS-408) toward Scott Island where the sub
could find open water, Northwind received a radio message that USS Merrick (AKA-97), USS Yancey and
USS Mount Olympus (AGC-8) were in danger from floating ice.
Northwind dropped her tow temporarily, rushed back to the assistance of the beleaguered vessels, and is shown towing the Yancey towards an
area of less danger.
