The U.S. Coast Guard cutter Steadfast returned to homeport in Astoria last week. During a two-month counternarcotics patrol off the West Coast, the 210-foot cutter intercepted more than 4,800 pounds of cocaine with a street value of more than $71 million.

While on patrol, Steadfast crew stopped in Puerto Vallarta and Tapachula, Mexico, on community relations events.

In Puerto Vallarta, 30 crew and members of the Navy League of the United States painted living spaces, planted a garden and cleaned up around the Puerto Vallarta Chapter at Corazon de Nina, a shelter for at-risk children in the state of Jalisco. Children at the shelter also got to tour the Steadfast.

With the U.S. Embassy Mexico City’s Office of Defense Cooperation and U.S. Northern Command Humanitarian Assistance Program, Steadfast crew members improved dormitory spaces at a cancer shelter run by the Mexican National System for Integral Family Development in Tapachula. The regional hospital treats patients who travel to the facility from the states of Chiapas and Tabasco.
