Hon. James L. Oberstar, Sept. 10, 1934 to May 3, 2014

The boat Hon James L. Oberstar arrived Duluth to salute the Congressman
Listen to her boat whistle as the Hon. James L. Oberstar sounded a full, formal Interlake Fleet Salute in honor of Mr. Oberstar. The Interlake Fleet Salute is 2 long blasts, followed by 3 short. The Captain will draw out the salute for full effect!  And, as is maritime tradition, the Bridge will return the salute.

  2. You can hear the whistle echo off the hills as if they were answering the salute to a Great Man

  3. I did listen to the official Great Lake Salute and it was impressive, and touching to me, and the Great Senator Oberstar. I am certain that he also heard it! And was touched.
