Securing the Coasts: U.S. Navy & U.S. Coast Guard

Media

Tuesday, June 9, 2015

The U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard serve to safeguard the nation's security, citizens, and interests in an increasingly complex maritime domain. The coastlines are home to over half the nation’s population, hubs of American culture and history, and centers for economic activity in a global economy. And the nation’s top sea service leaders are facing emerging threats and challenges in dealing with balancing activities on the water, increasing storms and extreme events, and changing ocean environments from the Atlantic to the Arctic. Despite mounting uncertainties and a tough fiscal climate, military leadership must always be ready to prevent, protect, and participate in dealing with the mounting issues on the coast.
