Because of your support, Heritage continues to host the leaders of our government to address today’s most critical issues.
This week was no exception.
Thursday, Heritage hosted Admiral Paul Zukunft, Commandant of the United States Coast Guard, to discuss how he plans to protect America’s security in the coming years as the world becomes a progressively more dangerous place.
The U.S. Coast Guard has a wide range of national responsibilities, from interdicting cocaine shipments and conducting search and rescue on the high seas, to enabling commerce and securing America’s ports. It protects and defends over 100,000 miles of U.S. coastline and inland waterways, and safeguards the largest Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in the world.
It is an asset for both national security and economic prosperity, serving as a law enforcement agency, military service and member of the Intelligence Community at all times.
Watch the event below:
What do you think are the greatest challenges the Coast Guard will face in the future?
