PHILADELPHIA — The Coast Guard Cutter Hamilton made a port call at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia Tuesday.
The 418-foot cutter was moored at Penn’s Landing from May 10-13 for its first port call to Philadelphia — the first time a national security cutter has ever visited Philadelphia.
The commands from Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay and the cutter Hamilton held a reenlistment and promotion ceremony for crew members at Independence Hall in Philadelphia.
The Hamilton’s primary missions include law enforcement, alien migrant interdiction operations, counter narcotics, living marine resources, search and rescue, defense operations and homeland security.
The cutter Hamilton is homeported in Charleston, South Carolina.
