U.S. Army Col. Steven Gventer, commander of Joint Task Force-Bravo, watches as a U.S. Army UH-60 Black Hawk with the 1st Battalion, 228th Aviation Regiment, prepares to land aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter James near Roatan, Honduras, June 4, 2021.

The USCGC James is a worldwide deployer with maritime capabilities and authorities.

The deck landing qualification mission concluded the battalion’s third phase of overwater survival training designed to ensure aircrew members have confidence in their abilities to respond in the event of an overwater emergency, such as a downed aircraft, disaster relief response, aero-medical evacuation or a search and rescue mission over open water.
