Diligence home from mission in Caribbean

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Family and friends welcomed home the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Diligence this afternoon. The ship returned from a 45-day multi-mission patrol in the Caribbean.

The ship patrolled the caribbean for drug smugglers, alien immigration and also participated in search and rescues.

Roses, hugs and kisses filled the Riverwalk in front of the Diligence’s dock.

The diligence intercepted more than 3,000 pounds of cocaine during this patrol.

It leaves on another mission some time in the middle of December.
