USCGC FORWARD is home ported at the Integraded Support Command (ISC) Portsmouth, VA. Her five sister ships: BEAR, TAMPA, HARRIET LANE, NORTHLAND and LEGARE are located in Portsmouth as well. All six ships share the same responsibilities, allowing their crews to enjoy a two-month inport period and a two-month deployment period.

This area offers a wide selection of family services, outstanding medical facilities and opportunities for higher education from institutions such as Old Dominion University, Hampton University, and Tidewater Community College.
