USCGC Legare (WMEC 912) as seen underway for Eastern Pacific patrol in late 2021. The Legare crew patrolled over 12,650 nautical miles through the heart of the Eastern Pacific Ocean in support of Campaign Martillo working in conjunction with Customs and Border Protection, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and other partnering nations.

An interesting little post on the Coast Guard’s use of a Navy repair team, Fleet Readiness Center Southwest’s (FRCSW) Voyage Repair Team (VRT).

FRCSW’s VRT artisans repair at least one USCG vessel monthly. The next scheduled repair is in March to the USCG Legare (WMEC-912), also homeported at USCG Base Portsmouth.
