U.S. Coast Guard cutter back in Hawaii after trek to Japan

The Coast Guard Cutter Kimball recently returned to its home port in Honolulu following a 42-day, 10,000-nautical-mile Western Pacific patrol that took it all the way to the port city of Kagoshima, Japan.

The Kimball, assigned to the Oahu-headquartered Coast Guard District 14, worked with service members from the Japanese coast guard’s 10th District to plan and conduct combined operations and search-and-rescue exercises. The Kimball’s crew also met with senior Japanese coast guard leadership and hosted Japanese coast guard service members, U.S. Consulate Fukuoka staff, community leaders and local media aboard the cutter during the port visit.
