March 4, 1952: President Truman dedicates the Courier

March 4, 1952: The 1st ever maritime broadcasting vessel named Courier was dedicated by President Harry S. Truman in Washington, DC.

The Courier, known as 'Doddridge', would sail away and do many duties, including reporting. After  Truman's dedication, she became known as 'The Vessel of Truth'.
