By RICHARD R. BURGESS, Managing Editor
ARLINGTON, Va. — The Coast Guard has selected names for 19 Sentinel-class fast-response cutters (FRCs), the service announced in a Nov. 22 message to Coast Guard forces.
Continuing the pattern of FRCs already named, the next batch of Sentinel-class FRCs will be named for “enlisted leaders, trailblazers and heroes of the Coast Guard and its predecessor services of the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service, U.S. Lifesaving Service and U.S. Lighthouse Service,” the message said.
The 19 FRCs will be named for:
■ Master Chief Angela McShan
■ Surfman Pablo Valent
■ Surfman Frederick Hatch
■ Mustang Officer Maurice Jester
■ Electrician Myrtle Hazard
■ Coxswain Harold Miller
■ Coxswain William Sparling
■ Coxswain Daniel Tarr
■ Coxswain Glenn Harris
■ Coxswain Douglas Denman
■ Pharmacist’s Mate Robert Goldman
■ Steward’s Mate Emlen Tunnel
■ Steward’s Mate Warren Deyampert
■ Seaman John Scheuerman
■ Seaman Charles Moulthrop
■ Boatswain’s Mate Clarence Sutphin
■ Boatswain’s Mate Edgar Culbertson
■ Keeper William Chadwick
■ Keeper John Patterson.
The 154-foot Sentinel-class FRC is built by Bollinger Shipyards and is replacing the Coast Guard’s Island-class patrol boats. Bollinger has delivered 26 to the Coast Guard to date.
