What does the Coast Guard do?

Is it worth enlisting with them?


Answer by  S54 (39)

The Coast Guard is a branch of United States Armed Forces, but they also serve as a maritime law enforcement agency. They frequently perform search and rescue operations, keep watch for illegal immigrants and contraband smugglers, and protect the maritime environment from hazardous chemical spills (such as oil).

The Coast Guard is NOT a member of the Department of Defense. This above statement is FALSE! The Coast Guard is a member of the Department of Homeland Security.  add a comment

As the name suggests, the first mission of the Coast Guard is to guard our nation's coastal waters. They also serve the public boating community by providing assistance in an emergency. Any young person interested in serving our country should consider enlisting in the Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard is responsible for being the first line of defense for any type of threat coming by way of sea. They are also responsible as being one of the first responders to any type of accident in the ocean.
