CG36500 Meets CGSC Berbard C. Webber, 2014

The CG 36500 met up with the newly commissioned (2012-04-14) 154 foot long Coast Guard Sentinel Class cutter, the Bernard C. Webber, when she came North from her home port in Miami Beach, Florida. The significance of the first of a new class of cutter being named after Coxswain Webber should not be lost on anyone who has a sense of Coast Guard history, as in the past the Coast Guard has named their vessels after Secretaries of The Treasury, capes, points, winds, sharks, and flowering shrubs. Not to mention other high profile people like Alex Haley, Abbie Burgess, etc. This class will bear the names of heroic enlisted men and women of the Coast Guard. What an honor to be the first in a class of commissioned U.S. vessels!
