    Captain Bob Little, Stratton Commanding Officer: Hey Stratton, good morning! I wanted to say a few words before we take in lines. We talked a little bit yesterday about how special what we do is. Very few people in the Coast Guard actually crew these ships, take in lines, get underway, and go halfway around the world to do the king’s business. And we’re about to go do that. The Navy’s 7th Fleet is extremely committed to flying, sailing and conducting operations anywhere that international law permits, and we are going to be a part of that. And our efforts are going to be focused on doing that, in particular, in that Indo-Pacific region.

    Vice Admiral Linda Fagan, Pacific Area Commander: You saw the Taiwan Straits transit, you’ve seen all the UN sanction and ship-to-ship transfer work that Bertholf contributed to. Absolutely critical to top national strategic priorities, and you’re going to go right into that same mission space. The demand for the Coast Guard has never been higher.

    Fagan: The United States is a Pacific nation. We have deep and long-standing ties with our partners in the region, and more importantly, we share a strong commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific. The U.S. Coast Guard’s deployment of resources to the region directly supports U.S. foreign policy and national security objectives in the Indo-Pacific, governed by a rules-based international system that promotes peace, security, prosperity, and the sovereignty of all nations.

    Fagan: During Bertholf’s recent deployment she visited Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, and the Philippines, and we look forward to welcoming Bertholf back to Alameda soon.

    Fagan: As the Department of Homeland Security’s sole armed service, the United States Coast Guard’s unique authorities, capabilities, missions and partnerships enable us to expertly engage in the Pacific.
