PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

There's a new commanding officer over the Ingalls Shipbuilding team that constructs our national security cutters.

Captain Travis Carter will now lead the crew of Project Resident Office Gulf Coast. A change of command ceremony was held Wednesday at Singing River Yacht Club in Pascagoula.

Carter is taking over for Captain Christopher Webb. He said it will be an easy transition.

"Feels a little bit like coming home. We've been down here before. I love living on the Gulf Coast. The folks that I'm working with here at Pro Gulf Coast, I know them well. I met most of them back when I was lieutenant commander '04. So they're very familiar with me, I'm very familiar with them," he said.

Carter said he and his family lived on the Louisiana side of the Gulf Coast about 10 years ago and he's glad to be back. He will hold his new position for three years.

Ingalls' website states, "Legend-class National Security Cutters (NSC) are the flagships of the U.S. Coast Guard. They are the largest and most technologically advanced ships in the Coast Guard’s fleet, with capabilities for maritime homeland security, law enforcement and national security missions.

At sea, National Security Cutters are tasked with performing a wide variety of missions, including maritime security, environmental protection and drug interdiction."
