Coast Guard members return to San Diego

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Coast Guard members stationed in San Diego boarded several pirate ships in high-risk operations off Africa, and returned safely home last night, a spokesman said Sunday.

Family and friends gathered at the San Diego International Airport to welcome Maritime Safety and Security Teams members back home from a four-month deployment to Gulf of Aden Saturday night, said USCG Petty Officer 2nd Class Henry Dunphy.

Dunphy said one little girl waved a sign that said "Welcome Home Daddy."

The Coast Guard teams joined the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command (CENTCOM) and Combined Task Force 151 in several high-risk boardings to fight piracy and enforce international maritime law.
