“These interdictions — and the hundreds of millions of dollars, tons of drugs, and many trafficker prosecutions they represent — help disrupt the violent transnational criminal organizations that threaten the security of the U.S. and the entire western hemisphere,” said Rear Adm. Joseph Servidio, commander of the 11th Coast Guard District.
