Answer The Coast Guard patrols the waters around states that have water-ways being there to help people in peril. I say in peril, their boat could be sinking or have motor p…roblems. There could be someone sick or injured and the Coast Guard helps out when it can. They also patrol the sea's for drug smugglers. Not only does the U.S. Coast Guard keep watch of the U.S. coastal regions and water-ways they have been involved in every major conflict the U.S. has endured. ************** The USCG has many other missions. They include: Aids to Navigation Military Readiness Drug Interdiction Illegal Migrant Interdiction Port Security Search and Rescue Boating Safety Education Maritime Law Enforcement Fisheries Enforcement The U.S.Coast Guard currently operates within the Department of Homeland Security. Before that, it has been within the Treasury Dept., and the Transportation Dept. In time of war or national emergency, the Coast Guard can operate under the operational control of the Navy Dept. The last time this happened was in WWII, although the CG has been fractionally involved in every major conflict since then, including Vietnam, and both Gulf wars. The CG is often involved in training of foreign governments concerning matters where the CG is regarded as the world expert. That's enough for a short answer. You can find more detailed explanations on the USCG web site, and in books on the subject.
The U.S. Coast Guard is a multi-mission branch of the military that engages in maritime search and rescue, law enforcement, drug interdiction, alien migrant interdiction, port…, waterway and coastal security, homeland security and national defense. They operate under the Department of Homeland Security, but can and have been transferred into the Department of the Navy in times of war. The Coast Guard operates small boats from shore stations as small as 25 feet up to ice breaking and high endurance cutters of 420 feet in length. -MCG *The United States Coast Guard (USCG) is a branch of the US military. It helps people around the world when there is a flood, ship sinking, etc. They also have 2 ice breakers (Polar Star and the Polar Sea) which run into ice and cut a path for other ships. They can also be put into combat.
The Coast Guard was originally part of the Revenue Cutter Serviceand was founded in 1790. It is a branch of the United States ArmedForces.

If you want to be fully employed and kept busy...join the Coast Guard. Formerly under the directive of the Teasury Department, then the Transportation Department, now the Home…land Security Department...the USCG is very busy rescuing people at sea, enforcing the laws at sea (lakes and rivers), as well as fulfilling military functions in combat zones (war zones); Sort of a US Maritime Police Force. The National Guard (all 50 of them) have only recently been allowed to function as a police force (since the Clinton administration); however, the Guard is the "ole state militia"...and that can translate into "part time work." Additionally the Guard is primarily either Army or Air Force; there is no Navy or Marine Guard. That translates into strictly military and Law Enforcement (no or very few SEARCH/RESCUE operations). They are VERY different branches of the military, they have different missions, thus one is not better than the other, However, if you are looking for a career in one, it would depend on what you are looking to do and what skills play on your strengths.
no it is not, its is it own branch of service, funded completely by the U.S. government. Not like the national guard the has state influence. Actually, the Coast Guard is unde…r the Dept. Of Transportation and the National Guard is under the Dept. Of The Army.

No. There is a single Coast Guard JROTC programme, but no collegiate level ROTC programmes. You can receive a commission in the Coast Guard through Navy ROTC, the United State…s Coast Guard Academy, or you can apply for a direct commission to the Coast Guard from the United States Merchant Marine Academy.
Yes and no. Under current conditions, they're subordinate to the Department of Homeland Security (as opposed to the other branches, which are subordinate to the Department of …Defence). If the need arises, they can be placed under command of the Department of the Navy.
The term "pan-pan" is derived from French, but pronouned "pon-pon".It means "pay attention now", meaning an urgent message willfollow. It is the second highest level used by t…he USCG, with"may-day" being the highest.

You can do many things in the Coast Guard. For example, you can have a civilian job such as in civil engineering or wellness coordination. If you choose to be enlisted, one of… your responsibilities may be finding drug traffickers.
