A Port Clinton-based Coast Guard port security unit assisted four mariners in distress while conducting training on San Diego Bay, April 6.
“This is an example of the multi-mission capabilities of the Port Security Units,” said Cmdr. Gerald A. Nauert, Port Security Unit 309’s commanding officer. “Our primary mission is to provide security to sensitive ports and vessels, but our training also enables us to provide humanitarian assistance to the public. It’s a perfect example of our members living up to our unit motto, Facta Non Verba — Deeds Not Words.”
