Coast Guard Cutter Willow crew returns to homeport after 32-day patrol in Caribbean Sea
The Coast Guard Willow crew conducts a buoy evolution during a 32-day patrol in the Caribbean Sea on Feb. 10, 2024, near Puerto Rico. Working alongside the Coast Guard Research and Development (R&D) Center, the Willow crew installed a prototype buoy to replace Bahia de San Juan Lighted Buoy 2, which has historically been reported off station or missing due to the significant weather it encounters.
