January 21, 2021 - The commissioning crew of U.S.
Coast Guard Cutter (USCGC) Charles Moulthrope (WPC 1141) stands
proudly on the ship's decks at Coast Guard Base Portsmouth, Virginia
shortly after it was commissioned into service at Coast Guard Base
The Charles Moulthrope is the first of six fast
response (FRC) cutters planned for service in Manama, Bahrain.
Stationing FRCs in Bahrain supports PATFORSWA, the Coast Guard's
largest unit outside of the USA, with a mission to train, organize,
equip, support and deploy combat-ready Coast Guard forces in support
of Central Command and national security objectives.
PATFORSWA works with Naval Forces Central Command to conduct
maritime operations to forward U.S. interests, deter, and counter
disruptive countries, defeat violent extremism, and strengthen
partner nations' maritime capabilities to secure the maritime
environment in the Central Command area of responsibility.
The cutter is named after Seaman Charles Moulthrope, remembered for
heroic and selfless service as a member of the Revenue Cutter
Service cutter Commodore Perry, en route to patrol Alaska, when he
rescued multiple shipmates who ended up in the sea.
