"What I’m really trying to do is create a change-centric organization that continually adapts to its environment…An enduring legacy that I would like to leave is that we have [created] a Coast Guard that was capable of sensing changes in demand and proactive in doing what this country needs us to do."

With more than 218 years of service to the nation, the U.S.
Coast Guard is a military, multimission maritime organization
that safeguards U.S. economic and security interests. From
the oil platforms of the northern Arabian Gulf to our interior
rivers, to an increasingly open and accessible Arctic Ocean,
the Coast Guard ensures the safety, security, and stewardship
of our maritime domain. Facing new challenges has required
it to organize more efficiently and manage business practices
more effectively.

We had the pleasure of speaking with Admiral Allen about
the Coast Guard’s modernization, its many successes, and the
various challenges it faces as it serves the nation.


Admiral Allen has done a wonderful job to date and he continues his service to the country. This conversation is very interesting and insghtful...so well put together and highlights a solid american leader....
