Close, never did the circumnavigation....but all the lines.
Interesting about that, I always said the USCG had a short memory for firsts.
I thought they claimed a 378 in the 2001 was the first USCG vessel to do a circumnavigation cruise????
USCGC Sherman (WHEC 720) - Molu 'Ekahi Hui 'Ekahi
In July 2001, SHERMAN became the first Coast Guard cutter to circumnavigate the world after conducting U.N. sanctions enforcement duty in the Persian Gulf and goodwill projects in Madagascar, South Africa, and Cape Verde.*
But then....““Only US Coast Guard Ship to Circumnavigate the World””

The USCG Cutter Bramble accomplished this feat of circumnavigation in 1957, 13 years after she was Commissioned in 1944.
This tour made the Eastwind the first cutter ever to circumnavigate the globe.
