September 20, 2019 - The newly commissioned U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Angela McShan (WPC-1135) crew underway near Miami, Florida. Angela McShan, the cutter’s namesake, was the first African-American woman to be promoted to master chief petty officer.
Fast response cutters are replacing the 1980s-era 110-foot patrol boats and feature advanced command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance equipment.
