Abstract:

For the Coast Guard three core objectives of national security policy are critical to politico-military plans, programs, and operations bolstering economic prosperity, promoting democracy abroad, and enhancing security by effective diplomacy and with forces that are ready to fight and win. To achieve these objectives, our national security strategy states, we will remain engaged abroad and work with partners, new and old, to promote peace and prosperity. These compelling and enduring objectives will continue to shape the Coast Guards vision. They indicate how the multi-mission Coast Guard-as the Nations premier maritime agency-will respond to needs at home and abroad even as it prepares for unknown future requirements that will inevitably be thrust upon it.
