JUNEAU, Alaska —

Gov. Sean Parnell has extended his gratitude to the crew of the Coast Guard cutter Healy for its role in getting fuel to the iced-in city of Nome.

The Healy, the Coast Guard's only functioning icebreaker, broke ice as it led a Russian tanker delivering 1.3 million gallons of fuel to Nome.

The Healy was due back in its homeport of Seattle at Christmas, but had its mission extended seven weeks to blaze the path for the tanker.

Parnell thanked the Healy's crew for its service and sacrifice.
