Coast Guard Outlook 2011.

Coast Guard Outlook 2011 is live online. You can view a copy of the service’s flagship publication by clicking here.

Outlook is published each year to provide the public with an overview of the Coast Guard’s missions, assets, units and personnel. It is an excellent introduction to our service for the uninitiated and a great way for our partners and customers to keep up with the latest innovations.

Part yearbook and part forecast, Coast Guard Outlook 2011 features 34 articles including interviews with senior leadership on the future of our service; the outstanding volunteer contributions our people make in the communities where they live and serve; mission profiles from across the nation; and the latest on the technologies the Coast Guard employs for mission success.

This year’s Outlook brings you inside the Coast Guard with:

Interviews with Admiral Bob Papp, 24th Commandant of the Coast Guard, and the 10th Master Chief Petty Officer of the Coast Guard, Michael L. Leavitt, on the state of our service and their vision for the future;
