Coast Guard, Marine Corps Expand Strength, Ties

Thursday, August 01, 2002
The Coast Guard commandant, the commandant of the Marine Corps and a North Carolina congressman will be honored guests at a building dedication Friday at the Coast Guard Port Security Unit Training Detachment (PSU TRADET) located at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, N.C. Adm. Thomas H. Collins, Gen. James Jones and Congressman Howard Coble will be on hand to formally dedicate a new building the Marine Corps has leased to PSU TRADET. The building will provide more office space for PSU TRADET personnel along with more classrooms to be used for instruction in the several courses offered at PSU TRADET. PSU TRADET was established in October 1997 to train and standardize Coast Guard port security units for overseas deployment. Recently, PSU TRADET has taken on numerous other responsibilities. The PSU TRADET is the sole unit responsible for testing non-lethal weapons for the Coast Guard, as well as training specialized boat crews able to deploy from Coast Guard cutters in counter-narcotic patrols. Most recently, training of the new Maritime Safety and Security Teams has been added to the PSU TRADET’s agenda.
