U.S. Coast Guard Sentinel-class fast response cutter USCGC Emlen Tunnell (WPC 1145) entered Malta’s historic Grand Harbour earlier this morning.

Fast response cutters are a key component of the Coast Guard’s surface fleet, which is capable of deploying independently to conduct missions that include port, waterways, and coastal security. These vessels are transiting to their new home port of Manama, Bahrain where they will conduct maritime security, maritime infrastructure protection, and theater security cooperation in support of U.S. Central Command.

USCGC Emlen Tunnell’s namesake is Pro Football Hall of Famer Emlen Tunnell who was the first African American player to be inducted into the Hall of Fame
