May 7, 2019

New London — With the completion of a four-year, 29 million, slightly higher than the initial estimate of $28 million.

Members of the ship’s crew, most of whom have already relocated to the New London area, are  “thrilled” to return to New London, which was designated as a “Coast Guard City” in 2015, said Ensign Angelica Brooks, public affairs officer for the Eagle.

“Their return to New London will mark the culmination of a high-visibility overseas deployment to Europe to help commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, reinforce important relationships for the Departments of Homeland Security, State, and Defense, while also conducting the annual Coast Guard Academy cadet training,” Brooks said.
