USCG Cutter Active Changes Command

US Coast Guard Cutter Active received a new commander during a change of command ceremony in Port Angeles Thursday.

Vice Adm. Charles Ray, Pacific Area Commander, presided over the ceremony in which Cmdr. Benjamin Berg relieved Cmdr. Phillip Crigler as the commanding officer of the Cutter.

Crigler’s next assignment is the Long Range Enforcement Platform Manager at Coast Guard Headquarters.

Berg previously served as executive officer of the Seattle-based Coast Guard Cutter Midgett.

Commissioned in 1965, Active is a 210-foot, diesel powered, helicopter-capable Coast Guard Cutter with a crew of 80. Active’s crew patrols the west coast of the United States, Mexico, and Central America.
