Patrol Boat Roundup 2015

The 110-foot Island-class patrol boats of Sector Juneau descended upon Ketchikan, Alaska, to participate in this year’s annual Patrol Boat Roundup. Unlike other cutter roundups of the Last Frontier, the focus for the crews of the cutters Liberty, Chandeleur, Naushon and Anacpa was less on competition and more on education and teamwork.


The Last Frontier: Ready for Operations

All around the Coast Guard, RFO teams work with operational units to ensure standardization and that all crews are able to perform their missions safely. In Alaska, the harsh environment and limited infrastructure make readiness that much more critical to success.
