N 2/c John Cullen, who helped foil one of two Nazi sabotage teams that were sent to the United States in 1942.  Cullen discovered the saboteurs, who had landed on a Long Island beach from their submarine U-202, during his six-mile patrol from Coast Guard Station Amagansett.  He immediately reported the incident to his superiors; they then contacted the FBI.  Neither sabotage team was successful and all of the Nazi agents were captured.
