Updates to the workforce from the vice commandant

Coast Guard Cutters Stratton and Bertholf are moored at Coast Guard Island in Alameda, Calif., Dec. 24, 2018. 418-foot long National Security Cutters, including Bertholf and Stratton, are designed as the flagships of the Coast Guard’s fleet, capable of executing the most challenging national security missions, including support to U.S. combatant commanders.
