The Bering Sea Patrol was conducted by the United States Revenue Cutter Service from 1867 to approximately 1965. In 1915, the service merged with the US Life-Saving Service to form the US Coast Guard. LeRoy Reinberg was a 2nd Lieutenant in the Revenue Cutter Service, serving aboard the cutters Thetis (1907) and Perry (1909). After his service, Reinburg compiled his photographs of Alaska and Siberia into an album, which was passed to his son, Captain LeRoy Reinburg, Jr.
