Description

Coast Guard Cutter Jacob Poroo was commissioned December 8, 2017. The Jacob Poroo is a Sentinel-class fast response cutter that is homeported in Pascagoula, Mississippi, but operates throughout the vast and unique area of the Coast Guard’s Eighth District.

In 2010, Charles “Skip” W. Bowen, who was then the Coast Guard’s most senior non-commissioned officer, proposed that all 58 cutters in the Sentinel class should be named after enlisted sailors in the Coast Guard, or one of its precursor services, who were recognized for their heroism. In 2015 the Coast Guard announced that Jacob Poroo would be the namesake of the 25th cutter, USCGC Jacob L. A. Poroo. She was built in Lockport, Louisiana, at the Bollinger shipyards, and delivered to the Coast Guard on September 5, 2017. After completing her sea trials, the cutter was commissioned in December 2017. A posthumous Coast Guard Medal was awarded to Poroo.

Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.
