"America’s Coast Guard continues to stand the watch around the world and around the clock. Our servicemembers are conducting defense operations, saving lives, facilitating maritime commerce, and combatting dangerous drug cartels. We do all this while battling COVID-19 as part of the whole-of-Nation response.
The U.S. Coast Guard has once again proven its adaptability and resilience. Your leadership team is working to ensure your safety and support you in the face of this unprecedented threat, including additional PCS entitlements, suspending non-essential activities, and offering liberal extensions to those scheduled to separate in uncertain economic times. Thank you for your unmatched professionalism – both on and off duty." – Admiral Karl Schultz, Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard.
