State of the Coast Guard 2018

Last week, Adm. Zukunft gave his final “State of Coast Guard Address” at the historic National Press Club in Washington, D.C. In his address, Adm. Zukunft used the events of the past year to highlight how each Coast Guard member has garnered public trust through dynamic leadership and a bias for action. The Coast Guard’s greatest asset, our people, embody and guard this lasting trust, which has sustained our service’s mission excellence through an unprecedented 227th year.

I encourage all Coast Guard men and women – active duty, Reserve, civilian, and Auxiliary – to take a moment to watch the following videos and reflect on the public trust we hold and treasure as an essential element of our service and our operations. As the world grows in complexity, the Coast Guard’s relevancy will only increase, and you will be relied upon to preserve the high standards of operational excellence and public trust for which we are so well known.

Thank you for your outstanding work!

Semper Paratus!

Adm. Chuck Michel
Vice Commandant
