Commandant’s holiday message

Fran and I extend a heartfelt seasons greetings to our Coast Guard family around the world. We are especially grateful for the dedication and sacrifice of those Coast Guard men and women – and all members of the Armed Forces – who stand the watch. We were honored to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with our men and women stationed at Patrol Forces Southwest Asia and saw firsthand those who place Service before self to accomplish the mission.

For more than two centuries, Coast Guard men and women have safeguarded Americans through a common thread that binds us all – Service to Nation.
