The USCGC Tampa came home on December 7th, 2012 after a two month patrol. They confiscated more than five thousand pounds of cocaine. Keeping our streets clean of drugs. I am so proud of my husband and the crew of the Cutter Tampa. And so happy to have my husband back home for the holidays!
A few of the wives and I waiting for our husband's boat to finally pull in so we can find them!

It wasn't that cold, as I'm sure we were all to excited to feel the wind anyway.
After, being there from 3:00 to finally seeing him at 4:30 and getting him at 5, the time went surprisingly quick! I was so happy, I never wanted to let him go! Everyone else was waiting in the boat, my husband & I and a few other wives with their husband were on the pier, hoping to not have to let go of our husbands again! Until next patrol, we will be un-seperate-able (except for duty days and work!) Glad to have them home.
