Two of three United States Coast Guard cutters home-ported with the Pacific command in Alameda were home in time for Thanksgiving this year; the third was on deployment.

The cutter Waesche returned to Alameda on Sunday, November 22nd after an 18,000-mile deployment ranging from the coast of Southern California to the Arctic Ocean, and the Bering Sea.

The Waesche had departed in August to complete weapons system testing and certification, patrol the Arctic, and enforce federal fisheries laws and safety regulations in the Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea.

Cutter Bertholf returned on Tuesday, November 24th, after a 104-day deployment during which crew seized over $455 million worth of illegal narcotics.

Bertholf was deployed to the Eastern Pacific Ocean in support of Joint Interagency Task Force-South operation Martillo. During this phase the cutter’s crew boarded and seized 11 smuggling vessels, detained 32 suspected narco-traffickers, and seized more than 30,000 pounds of illegal narcotics.

The Stratton was underway in the Eastern Pacific over Thanksgiving, on a mission to counter illicit trafficking; the crew is slated to be away from home for Christmas as well.
