Bollinger Shipyards has delivered the USCGC Terrell Horne, the 31st Fast Response Cutter (FRC) to the U.S. Coast Guard. The Coast Guard took delivery on the October 25, 2018 in Key West, Fla.

The 154 foot patrol craft USCGC Terrell Horne, the 31st vessel in the Coast Guard's Sentinel-class FRC program has a flank speed over 28 knots, state of the art command, control, communications and computer technology, and a stern launch system for the vessel’s 26 foot cutter boat. The FRC has been described as an operational “game changer,” by senior Coast Guard officials. Recently, the Coast Guard deployed the FRC 1124, Oliver Berry from Hawaii across the Pacific to the Republic of the Marshall Islands. The 4,400 nautical mile trip marked the furthest deployment of an FRC to date. This trip showcases the hugely expanded operational reach and capability that the FRC provides.

Each FRC is named for an enlisted Coast Guard hero who distinguished him or herself in the line of duty. This vessel is named after Coast Guard Hero Terrell Horne.  While leading a boarding team from the CGC Halibut, Horne died from injuries sustained while conducting maritime law enforcement operations off the California coast. Disregarding his own safety in order to protect a fellow crew member, Horne demonstrated remarkable initiative, fortitude and daring in spite of imminent personal danger. Through his career, Horne earned two Coast Guard Achievement Medals, qualified for the boat forces operational insignia and the cutterman’s insignia. For his heroic actions Terrell Horne III was posthumously promoted to senior chief petty officer.
