U.S Coast Guards recently seized more than 39,000 pounds of cocaine in 14 busts off Central and South America, including this harrowing interdiction of a self-propelled semi-submersible vessel carrying over 16,000 pounds of cocaine.

The cocaine they seized had a street value of $569 million. Vice President Mike Pence has made plans to greet them upon their return to the U.S. on Thursday.
