PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - The Coast Guard is marking the official arrival of a new patrol boat at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story in Virginia Beach.

The Vigorous is the first of two medium endurance cutters from Cape May, New Jersey, to be relocated to Little Creek. The Coast Guard Cutter Dependable is scheduled to arrive in 2015.

Officials say the addition of the boats will significantly increase the Coast Guard’s operational presence in the region.
