Delivering and carrying out orders with admirable efficiency, they play a vital role in the successful completion of every Coast Guard operation. Highly adaptive and superbly skilled, Lieutenants advance the mission of the Coast Guard to defend the nation’s waterways, coastlines, and shoreside assets.
