SAN DIEGO – Petty Officer Second Class Danny Seanez, a native of Brawley,  recently participated in seizing more than 1,500 kilograms of cocaine while operating in the Pacific Ocean, April 7.

According to a Navy news release, “USS Freedom, with embarked U.S. Coast Guard Law Enforcement Detachment 107, conducted the seizure off the coast of Mexico in support of Joint Interagency Task Force South’s counter-illicit drug trafficking mission.”

After the illicit drug transport boat was identified by Freedom and Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 23, the U.S. Coast Guard conducted the boarding, search and seizure.

“I’m honored to be a part of this operation and serve in the U.S. Navy. We have shown continuously that we are making positive change and difference around the world” said Seanez. 

“The Navy-Coast Guard team on Freedom executed flawlessly,” said Vice Adm. Scott D. Conn, U.S. Third Fleet commander. “This mission, performed on short notice with exacting precision, demonstrates the strength of our flexible, mobile, integrated and trained team.”

U.S. 3rd Fleet leads naval forces in the Indo-Pacific and provides the realistic, relevant training necessary to flawlessly execute our Navy’s timeless roles of sea control and power projection. U.S. 3rd Fleet works in close coordination with other numbered Fleets to provide commanders with capable, ready assets to deploy forward and win in day-to-day competition, in crisis, and in conflict.
