Crew of Coast Guard cutter Active returns to open arms in Port Angeles after 3-month deployment

“PORT ANGELES — The crew of the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Active returned home to a hero’s welcome Sunday afternoon after a three-month deployment off the coast of Central America.”

“The crew of the cutter seized more than $17 million worth of illegal narcotics during their deployment in support of Joint Interagency Task Force South, according to the Coast Guard.”

“During the deployment, Active’s crew responded to search-and-rescue calls, detained a number of suspicious vessels and suspects, and seized more than 1,177 pounds of cocaine from suspected smugglers.”

State-run media:

“While we were deployed for the drug interdiction mission, this was a typical multi-mission patrol for us.”
