ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Resolute is scheduled to return home Tuesday at 10 a.m., after a successful 34-day patrol in the Western Caribbean.

During the patrol, Resolute crewmembers conducted multi-national counter-narcotic smuggling operations with naval representatives from Colombia, Panama, Honduras and France.

Resolute crewmembers were at sea for Thanksgiving and hosted the holiday aboard the ship with members of the Panamanian Navy.

“The men and women of the Resolute performed admirably during an arduous patrol along known drug-smuggling routes in the Caribbean,” said Cmdr. Samuel R. Jordan, commanding officer of the Resolute. “Being underway during the holiday season is a significant undertaking, as many of our crew missed family gatherings and special events with children, spouses and parents. I am honored to serve as the commanding officer for such an outstanding group of Coast Guardsmen and women.”

Resolute is a 210-foot Reliance class cutter and has a crew complement of 12 officers and 68 enlisted personnel.
