Monday, January 14, 2002
The U.S. Coast Guard said that all 13 Cyclone-Class Navy Patrol Coastal (PC) ships have been reassigned to the Coast Guard in support of the Homeland Security mission. Six of these vessels were first assigned to support the Coast Guard in October 2001. Now the remaining seven have joined them in defending the U.S. coastline from security threats. The patrol craft are operated by Navy crews, but carry a team of USCG personnel who carry out any necessary law enforcement action. (Source: HK Law)
