While in the Puget Sound, CGC Stratton engaged in an impromptu tactical exercise with the Royal Canadian Naval training ships Grizzly, Cougar, and Raven. Stratton served as the guide vessel while the naval training vessels took station in a variety of formations around Stratton.

In Alaskan’s Northeastern most village, Kaktovik, AK, CGC Stratton sent ashore 15 crewmembers to meet with the Mayor and dozens of local villagers on October 1st, 2022. The shore party delivered blankets (courtesy of the Alameda Navy League), candy, ship coins, personalized etched glasses, and pamphlets while joining in a few games of football, tag and puzzles. Afterwards the team sat for a question and answer session, responding to inquiries about the Coast Guard, CG operations in the area, and personal career highlights. Everyone enjoyed spending some time getting to know each other, sharing in some unique opportunities (including enjoying some local muktuk offered by the villagers), and also observing (from afar) the 50+ polar bears that invaded Kaktovik following the Village’s subsistence whale hunt!

On October 12th, the crews of Coast Guard Cutter Stratton (WMSL 752) and Canadian Coast Guard Ship Sir Wilfrid Laurier conducted a search and rescue exercise near Point Hope, Alaska. The exercise commenced with Stratton deploying a small, unmanned craft to act as a vessel in distress and simulating a distress call (voiced by Petty Officer Third Class Isabel Acevedo-Garcia). The Canadian Coast Guard Ship Sir Wilfrid Laurier answered the call and notified the U.S. Coast Guard District 17, Joint Rescue Coordination Center (JRCC), of the simulated vessel in distress. The JRCC then coordinated the joint rescue efforts of Stratton and Sir Wilfrid Laurier. The Canadian Coast Guard Ship launched their small boat and Stratton directed their Scan Eagle aerial drone to locate the simulated distressed vessel. Displaying exceptional bilateral coordination and using the pinpoint location provided by Scan Eagle, operations specialists aboard Stratton directed the Canadian small boat toward the distressed vessel while watching a live feed from the overhead drone. The small boat located, recovered, and returned the distressed vessel to Stratton's crew. Following the exercise, the vessels closed to 500 yards and Stratton turned north to patrol the US side of the Maritime Boundary Line. The entire operation demonstrated unity and partnership between the Arctic nations.

Happy Flight Friday! While north of the Arctic Circle, an MH-60 helicopter resupplied CGC Stratton with coffee and spare parts on October 9th, 2022. On the MH-60’s initial approach, it blew some recently fallen snow off Stratton’s decks. Following the resupply, the MH-60 and Stratton conducted flight training so both crews are better prepared to work together in future. U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak

Happy Search and Rescue Saturday! On September 10th 2022, the crew of CGC Stratton saved the lives of two fisherman stranded in a storm more than 160 miles off the Oregon coast. While transiting north, CGC Stratton was diverted by the District Thirteen Joint Rescue and Coordination Center to assist the fishing vessel Loadstar. The 66-foot fishing vessel lost all means of propulsion and was stranded in a storm battling 12-15 foot waves and 40+ knot winds. CGC Stratton sped throughout the night and following day to arrive on scene in less than 12 hours after receiving the call. After surviving 20 hours in the storm, CGC Stratton arrived on scene and towed the fishing 120 nautical miles towards shore. CG Station Coos Bay deployed a 47-foot motor lifeboat to meet with Stratton and bring the Loadstar into a safe harbor. The crew certainly lived up to her ship’s motto of “We Can’t Afford Not To” and it was another great day in the Coast Guard’s long history of search and rescue!

In the United States’ most northern city, Utqiagvik, AK, CGC Stratton sent eight crewmembers ashore to meet with North Slope Borough Search (NSBSR) on October 3rd. The shore party deployed from Stratton’s small boat and utilized a small raft to land on the beach. An NSBSR pilot gave the team a tour of the city and their search and rescue headquarters, highlighting the exceptional work that the NSBSR service conducts on a routine basis throughout northern Alaska. The shore party also spent some time walking through the city and meeting with the residents of Utqiagvik. Many asked why the Coast Guard was there and were comforted to know that Stratton was in the Utqiagvik area to protect and serve them.

Meet U.S. Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Kristine Macaraeg, a health services technician assigned to the USCGC Stratton (WMSL 752). Chief Macaraeg told us why she joined the Coast Guard and what it means to her.

“I joined because I wanted to do something different – go out and see the world. The Coast Guard has given me a multitude of opportunities. It has given me the small family I have now back home in California. It has also allowed me the opportunity to do what I love to do – which is take care of people, and I wouldn’t be able to do any of this nor be the corpsman that I am now without the support of my husband and the CG family I have made the past 16 years.”

“I envied my husband’s profession and ability to have a job that takes you anywhere while in the Coast Guard. So on my 31st birthday, I decided it was time to be a part of the crew. I joined because the opportunity was calling me. It was driven by the need for exploring, traveling the world, and being part of another family. The military has been so supportive and I believe joining was one of the greatest decisions I made for myself and my family.” -SK3 Piunno
