Posted on June 09, 2016

The latest in a series of newly built Sentinel Class Cutters, the Donald Horsley, was commissioned in Puerto Rico on May 20, 2016. Coast Guard Foundation Trustee Robert Montgomery attended the commissioning to present the crew with a $5,000 gift for their morale fund during the ceremony.

Coast Guard Cutter Donald Horsley marks the 17th Sentinel Class fast response cutter and the fifth of its kind to be homeported in San Juan, Puerto Rico. These fast response vessels produce speeds of more than 28 knots and are crucial to the Coast Guard’s mission of curbing illegal maritime activity including counter-drug patrols, conducting search and rescue operations and more.
