From the Commandant: Standing the Watch

For those who can join friends, family and loved ones over the holiday season, Fran and I encourage you to make the most of every moment as we honor those who are on watch tonight, and every night, protecting the freedoms we so enjoy.

What I am most thankful for

For the second straight year, I am celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday overseas. This year, I had the privilege of joining Coast Guard families and our allies from the United Kingdom Royal Navy for Thanksgiving dinner. Without question, we have many reasons to be thankful. As Coast Guard Commandant, I am incredibly thankful.

Commandant’s holiday message

Fran and I extend a heartfelt seasons greetings to our Coast Guard family around the world. We are especially grateful for the dedication and sacrifice of those Coast Guard men and women – and all members of the Armed Forces – who stand the watch. We were honored to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with our men and women stationed at Patrol Forces Southwest Asia and saw firsthand those who place Service before self to accomplish the mission.
