We have a new Navy, and a new Coast Guard.

Are we spending our money well?

This new generation of Coast Guard Cutters is pretty Bad-Ass!

The Coast Guard was conceived in 1787, when America’s first secretary of the treasury, Alexander Hamilton, wrote “a few armed vessels, judiciously stationed at entrances to our ports, might at a small expense be made useful sentinels of our laws.”

The Fast Response Cutter (FRC), a new generation of Coast Guard patrol boats, will continue the Coast Guard’s long history of protecting America’s citizens, assets and interests at home and abroad. The first FRC will be named the Coast Guard Cutter Sentinel, with the official class designation as the “Sentinel” class. Learn more about the FRC
