Coast Guard Cutter Morgenthau to make Honolulu its new home starting Monday

Hawaii-Pacific Coast Guard News
HONOLULU – The Coast Guard Cutter Morgenthau is scheduled to arrive at its new homeport of Honolulu, Monday.

The Morgenthau is being relocated from Alameda, Calif., to replace the Coast Guard Cutter Jarvis, which was taken out of active service in October. A change of command ceremony took place in November and marked the official transfer of crews between Morgenthau and Jarvis.

Jarvis now resides in Alameda, where it is being prepared for transfer under the Foreign Military Sales Program.

The 43-year-old cutter, and the other Hamilton-class, high endurance cutters, are being replaced by the Legend-class, National Security Cutters. The NSC’s are better equipped, more durable, safer, and more efficient than their predecessor. They will allow the Coast Guard to deliver its unique blend of military capability, law enforcement authority, and lifesaving expertise wherever needed to protect American interests, today and for decades to come.
