    Thumbs up USCG LEDET Iraq...enjoy

    The Coast Guard officially established the LEDET program in 1982. The first LEDETs operated directly under Groups and Districts, where they served as law enforcement specialists, conducting training and local operations. In 1986, Public Law (P.L.) 99-570 specifically authorized the establishment of billets for active duty USCG personnel to carry out drug interdiction operations from naval surface vessels provided by the Department of Defense (DoD). Since Posse Comitatus strictly prohibits DoD personnel from directly engaging in law enforcement activities, LEDETs were tasked with operating aboard USN ships to investigate contacts and conduct boardings in accordance with USCG policy and directives. In accordance with P.L. 99-570, LEDETs were to deploy on U.S. Navy (USN) "ships of opportunity", transiting or operating in areas frequently used by illegal drug traffickers. In 1988, P.L. 100-456 made it a requirement that USCG law enforcement personnel be assigned to each appropriate USN surface vessel that transits a drug interdiction area.

    Great job on the figure and the background, Shaggy2. I cast about for info on USCG involvement in the war on terrorism, quite a while back, and the best i could find were thin references to port security units. This is good stuff.

    Great bash . Its good to see someone bash a Coastie.

    Other than TacLet's(Tactical Lawenforcment) and PSU's(Port Security Units), the Coast Guard has other AT units. MSSTs(Maritime Safety and Security Teams) and Sea Marshals(VBS).

    Someday, I'll finish my VBS team member(a mini-me).

    I love it. On vacation this week. Thanks for the reminder to see a CG recruiter.

    Wow! Excellent to have a whole new area of operation ( so to speak ) in which to bash... Thanks for sharing and for the historical background as well.
