The Korea Coast Guard partnership

I had the distinct honor this past week to represent the U.S. Coast Guard during an official visit to the Republic of Korea, hosted by Korea Coast Guard Commissioner General Kim Suk Kyoon. This was my third stop in a series of official visits to strengthen ties with partner maritime governance organizations and learn more about the dynamic Asia-Pacific region.
