Dogs Wait For Holiday Greetings From Returning Master
January 3, 2020
December 23, 2019 - Two dogs dressed for the holidays await the arrival of their master, who is aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Bertholf (WMSL 750) that is preparing to moor (off camera) at Coast Guard Island in Alameda, California.
The Bertholf crew returns following an eighty-two day counter-narcotics patrol that resulted in the seizure of more than 18,000 pounds of cocaine worth $312 million. The seizure involved seven separate suspected drug smuggling vessel interdictions and disruptions by Bertholf and four other Coast Guard cutter crews, who patrolled international waters of the Eastern Pacific Ocean off the coasts of Mexico, Central and South America between October and November.
