Commandant's Intent (transcript below) (Audio - click here)

I’m Admiral Thad Allen. I’m honored to be the 23rd Commandant of the Coast Guard and I look forward to working with each and every one of you over the next four years. As we transition our senior leadership, I want to renew and sustain our focus on mission execution. Our missions are the reason we exist. From the Persian Gulf to responding to hurricanes to global pandemics to fighting terrorist attacks, we protect our nation and the American public in the maritime domain. Our work is global in its reach and we need the finest platforms, the best people and the best support services to sustain our mission execution. That will be my focus over the next four years.
