John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Vessel Carrying Over One Ton of Cocaine Detected by CBP Air and Marine Operations

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.— An Air and Marine Operations (AMO) P-3 Orion Long Range Tracker crew was conducting maritime patrols in the Eastern Pacific when they detected a surface target of interest on Dec. 2.

The vessel was identified as a 35-foot long Ecuadorian style boat with three individuals onboard, which appeared to have engine trouble.

The individuals onboard the boat jettisoned two fuel barrels and multiple bails once they spotted the AMO aircraft.  A U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) cutter responded to the information and launched a helicopter for assistance in the interception of the vessel.

USCG intercepted the vessel and confirmed the individuals onboard were all Colombian citizens.  A total of 1,150 kgs. of cocaine were seized from the event.

The National Air Security Operations Center-Jacksonville forms half of the P-3 operations wing. With its partner center in Corpus Christi, Texas, Jacksonville operates P-3 aircraft throughout North and South America in defense of the borders of the United States and in active prosecution of attempts to smuggle persons or contraband. The center is an active partner with FEMA, the U.S. Department of Energy and NORAD in times of national crisis such as Hurricane Harvey or post 9/11.

AMO is a federal law enforcement organization dedicated to serving and protecting the American people through advanced aeronautical and maritime capabilities. AMO interdicts unlawful people and cargo approaching U.S. borders, investigates criminal networks and provides domain awareness in the air and maritime environments, and responds to contingencies and national taskings. With approximately 1,800 federal agents and mission support personnel, 240 aircraft and 300 marine vessels operating throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands, AMO serves as the nation’s experts in airborne and maritime law enforcement.

In Fiscal Year 2017, AMO enforcement actions resulted in the approximate seizure or disruption of 269,790 pounds of cocaine, 384,230 pounds of marijuana, 5,721 pounds of methamphetamine, 1,089 weapons, and $26.1 million; 2,573 arrests; and 37,009 apprehensions of illegal aliens.
