26th Commandant of the United States Coast Guard
James Di Pane
Policy Analyst, Defense Policy
The U.S. Coast Guard is a vital tool for national security, responsible for a wide range of missions supporting American security and prosperity in the maritime domain. From saving lives at sea and responding to natural disasters to arresting drug smugglers and protecting America’s resources, the Coast Guard operates across a wide spectrum of operations. However, it faces a number of challenges in the world today as the strategic environment grows more complex and it attempts to increase its readiness and modernize its ships, aircraft and infrastructure. Coast Guard Commandant Admiral Karl Schultz will weigh in on these challenges and opportunities facing the Coast Guard today and how, with the support of Congress, it can continue to support America’s economic and national security interests going forward.
