Two New National Security Cutters

The Coast Guard Cutter Kimball (WMSL 756) and the Coast Guard Cutter Midgett (WMSL 757) were “brought to life” during a dual-commissioning ceremony at Base Honolulu presided over by Adm.
Karl Schultz, the Coast Guard’s commandant Aug. 24, 2019.

 

The Kimball and Midgett are the seventh and eighth legend-class national security cutters in the Coast Guard’s fleet and will further advance the Coast Guard’s longstanding commitment to safeguard the nation’s maritime safety, security, and economic interests through critical deployments across the Indo-Pacific region.
