A Coast Guard vessel based in Newport is heading to Arctic waters. The cutter Juniper is scheduled to depart Thursday, to travel about 2,300 miles to the northernmost region of the high Arctic. The Juniper will conduct safety and security operations with naval and Coast Guard units from Denmark and Canada in a operation known as Operation Nanook. The cutter’s commanding officer, Lieutenant Commander Brian Caudle, said the mission provides an ideal opportunity to strengthen relationships with international partners. The Coast Guard says the deployment will also provide experience in responding to emergencies in the harsh Arctic environment. The Juniper has a crew of eight officers and 36 enlisted personnel.
