National Security Briefing: CAPT Greg Case, USCG

The 2017 National Security Briefing Breakfast Series began on February 28 at The Cornell Club with CAPT Greg Case, USCG. CAPT Case is currently serving as a Military Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and spoke to a packed room about the ways in which the United States Coast Guard’s multiple missions intersect to ensure our Nation’s maritime safety, security and stewardship.

Attendees learned how the Coast Guard’s six major operational mission programs are delineated under the Homeland Security Act of 2002 into 11 homeland security and non-homeland security missions. The former include: Ports, Waterways, and Coastal Security; Drug Interdiction; Migrant Interdiction; Defense Readiness; and Other Law Enforcement. The latter are made up of: Marine Safety; Search and Rescue; Aids to Navigation; Living Marine Resources; Marine Environmental Protection; and Ice Operations.

While each mission requires specialization of assets and personnel, budgetary realities require that the Coast Guard do more with less, so crosstraining and multitasking are crucial. CAPT Case discussed some of the specific assets designed to accomplish this. Finally, he shared Commandant Paul Zukunft’s strategic intent for how the service will continue to fulfill its responsibilities by understanding the strategic environment, adapting to the strategic challenges in all domains, and achieving and maintaining a resilient service that is always ready for the realities of the 21st century.
