Coast Guard cutter returns to Charleston


There were lots of hugs and kisses as the crew of the Coast Guard cutter Dallas returned to the Charleston harbor on Tuesday.

The Dallas' last mission was completing a three month patrol of the Caribbean Sea. The crew arrested several people and intercepted drugs and marijuana during their patrol.

The cutter is scheduled for a de-commissioning ceremony March 30 and will be transferred to the Philippine Navy by the end of May 2012.

The Coast Guard says the de-commissioning is natural that they have to do this as they bring on new assets.
