Coast Guard Cutter Dauntless (WMEC-624) has a distinguished history of over 50 years of operational service to the nation and has been a stalwart supporter of the city of Galveston, having operated out of the seaport city from 1995 until her recent reassignment to Pensacola, Florida, in 2018.
Dauntless became the first cutter in history to seize one million pounds of marijuana and has earned a reputation as one of the nation’s premier law enforcement assets with 97 illegal narcotics busts to her credit, more than any other Coast Guard cutter. The cutter also plays a leading role in search and rescue, illicit interdiction migrant, international fisheries enforcement activities, serving the public and embodying the Spanish phrase that serves as her motto, “Sin Miedo” or “without fear.”
