MARITIME FORCES AT WORK- News by LT. Stephanie Young 

Whenever a Coast Guard boatcrew conducts a drug-enforcement patrol or an aircrew flies over one of our nation’s ports to ensure its security, they are working with a global network of partners to get the mission done.

Recently, the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy and Canadian Maritime Forces Atlantic strengthened this global network as they discussed the mutual homeland security and defense issues of the three maritime commands charged with protecting the East Coast.

“The three-party talks are instrumental for the U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard and the Royal Canadian Navy to coordinate our efforts on shared maritime defense and maritime security issues,” said U.S. Navy Vice Adm. David Buss, U.S. Fleet Forces, deputy commander for Fleet and Joint Operations.
