Are Coast Guard ship/cutter names reused? How to find history?

How can I get information/pictures/history of a Coast Goard ship/cutter that was decommissioned in the early 1970's. When I google the cutter's name, I get a much older ship, with the same name, that was decommissioned around 1919. Are ship/cutter names reused?

Thank you!
