Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Karl Schultz is asking to hear about what motivates Coasties to serve in the run-up to his annual State of the Coast Guard address.
Schultz will deliver the State of the Coast Guard Address on Feb. 20 at 1 p.m. to reflect on the organization’s successes over the past year, detail the Fiscal Year 2021 budget request from the Trump administration, and outline the shared vision for the future of the service.
The address will include several announcements about global maritime safety and security, as well as workforce policies and advances.
Before then, Schultz is asking members to share their story with the hashtag #WhyIServeCG.
Our reasons for serving are as diverse as our @USCG extraordinary men & women. Please share you motivation for service in the world’s best Coast Guard using #WhyIServeCG. I hope to share them as we prepare for the State of the #CoastGuard2020.
