Coast Guard Accepts Delivery of Eighth Huntington Ingalls-Built National Security Cutter

Huntington Ingalls Industries has officially transferred custody of the U.S. Coast Guard's latest National Security Cutter that is scheduled for commissioning later this year.

NSC Midgett, also known as WMSL 757, is the eighth Legend-class vessel HII's Ingalls Shipbuilding division built for the service branch and is named after members of a family whose members have served in USCG, the company said Wednesday.
