Default Coast Guard Going to Persian Gulf

Local Coast Guard Team Heading To The Persian Gulf

December 28, 2002

By KOMO Staff & News Services

TACOMA - A Coast Guard port-security unit from Tacoma will be deployed to the Persian Gulf to provide port security for U.S. forces stationed there, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., announced Friday.

The unit's 112 reservists and five active-duty personnel will be used to establish and protect a security zone around U.S. military assets in the gulf, Murray said.

The exact date the unit will leave for the Middle East is not known, nor its length of service and location, Murray said. The unit has six deployable small boats.


Stay safe and.................
