Welcome aboard shipmate! JUNIPER is the lead ship of the 225' cutter class and her command and crew enthusiastically work hard to attribute to her the title of "Best 225' in the fleet!"

Your Captain is LCDR John Singletary and Executive Officer is LT Greg Batchelder. We look forward to your arrival and to your becoming a part of the hard-working crew that makes JUNIPER the best 225' in the fleet!
