Christopher Lee, an operator of the ScanEagle small unmanned aerial system (UAS), working aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Waesche (WMSL-751), explains the role of UAS to leaders in the Korea Coast Guard, during a tour of the Waesche in Pohang, Republic of Korea, June 9, 2024. U.S. Coast Guardsmen welcomed leaders from the Korea Coast Guard and the mayor of Pohang aboard for a tour to highlight capabilities and best practices used by the U.S. Coast Guard. Waesche is assigned to Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 15, the Navy’s largest DESRON and the U.S. 7th Fleet’s principal surface force. U.S. Coast Guard missions in the Indo-Pacific focus on issues directly supporting and advancing our regional partners’ efforts to protect fish stocks, ensure safety of life at sea, support environmental response, and provide disaster relief.
