Fast Response Cutter McCormick celebrates 8 Bells
The Cutter John McCormick is the Coast Guard’s 21st Fast Response Cutter and the first one homeported west of the Mississippi River. During the crew’s 6,200 mile voyage from Key West, Florida, to Ketchikan, Alaska, the crew and cutter experienced many firsts. Such as the first transit of a FRC through the Panama Canal, the first FRC in the Pacific Ocean and the first FRC to enter a U.S. West Coast port.
This video briefly showcases some of those firsts during their voyage.
