Mission Statement

Ready today…Preparing for Tomorrow

For over two centuries the U.S. Coast Guard has safeguarded our Nation’s maritime interests in the heartland, in the ports, at sea, and around the globe.

We protect the maritime economy and the environment, we defend our maritime borders, and we save those in peril. This history has forged our character and purpose as America’s Maritime Guardian — Always Ready for all hazards and all threats.

The Coast Guard’s motto is Semper Paratus, meaning “Always Ready.”
