USCGC Taney (WPG/WAGC/WHEC-37) () is a United States Coast Guard High Endurance Cutter, notable as the last ship floating that fought in the attack on Pearl Harbor, although Taney was actually moored in nearby Honolulu Harbor not Pearl Harbor itself (a non-combatant vessel at Pearl Harbor, the US Navy tug , also remains afloat). She was named for Roger B. Taney (1777–1864), who was at various times: US Attorney General, Secretary of the Treasury, and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. She is also one of two Treasury-class (out of seven total) Coast Guard cutters still afloat. Serving her country for 50 years, the Taney saw action in both theaters of combat in World War II, serving as command ship at the Battle of Okinawa, and as part of fleet escort in the Atlantic and Mediterranean. She also served in the Vietnam War in Operation Market Time. Taney participated in the 1937 search for Amelia Earhart, and has also patrolled the seas working in drug interdiction and fisheries protection. She is now a museum ship in the Inner Harbor of Baltimore, Maryland, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1988.
