USCGC Stratton, WMSL-752 was delivered on Friday, Sept. 2. More here.
Fabrication of USCGC Hamilton, WMSL 753, began two days earlier on August 31.
I have heard USCGC James, WMSL 754, will be contracted next week.
The Coast Guard has gotten its act together. Now, will Congress fully funds USCGC Stone , WMSL 755, in FY2013?
I’m assuming that STONE is named for E.F. Stone, Coast Guard Aviator #1. Who is the namesake of JAMES?
Roger that … I forgot about him.
Thanks for the info.
