In 2023, the year Vincent G. Danz's namesake ship is commissioned, the Coast Guard's youngest personnel will be 17, born years after he was killed on Sept. 11, 2001, in the World Trade Center attacks.

On Tuesday, the Coast Guard honored Danz, an NYPD emergency services officer from Farmingdale, in a naming ceremony for the patrol ship.
