without.further ado is my honor to introduce the.the person who's going to tell our Coast.Guard story.Admiral Carl Schultz Commandant of the.United States Coast Guard.[Applause].Wow good afternoon it's great to be here.in Charleston once again with our people.230 years ago the nation's first.secretary of the Treasury Alexander.Hamilton recognized that America's.prosperity depended on securing our.ports facilitating the flow of Commerce.and establishing common rules for.maritime trade Hamilton is safely.created what would become the United.States Coast Guard for well over two.centuries we are protected defended save.the shielded the American people today.I'm proud to stand before you as a.common on of the world's best Coast.Guard and tell the story of why we serve.to serve that's our promise to the.public over the past year you saw us.first on scene following the horrific.destruction of Hurricane Dorian the.largest most devastating storm to hit.the Bahamas millions watched in awe as.the Coast Guard's with fearless leap.onto a narco sub traversing the eastern.Pacific Ocean national security Cutter.Burt off plied the Taiwan Straits to.promote free and open access to the seas.and adherence to the rules based order.Coast Guard service members rescued 24.crew members from the overturned.600-foot golden ray not far from here.including four confined for over 30.hours in 140 degree engine room spaces.but we did not become the world's best.by resting on our laurels from our.humble beginnings with just 10 wooden.Brigantine sailing vessels through today.where our iconic racing stripe branded.on all our cutters and aircraft has.recognized as a symbol of responsible.maritime governance your Coast Guard.serves across the globe to advance.American security and prosperity we are.an indispensable arm of the United.States Armed Forces in the vital.component of the department of homeland.security as I reflect on the past year I.could not be prouder of the men and.women who answer our nation's call to.serve last March I stood with our people.in Los Angeles and we charter the course.for the future since then we put the.Pete the tools in the hands of our.frontline operators.including the fast-track deployment of.ScanEagle unmanned aircraft systems and.continue to achieve significant progress.towards fielding our next generation of.cutters and we updated our personnel and.assignment policies including important.changes to our weight and body.composition program addressing.disparities across our uniformed.workforce we've seen overwhelming demand.for our initiative to employ Coast Guard.reservists the backfill primary.caregivers on parental leave we've also.begun testing new electronic health.records and we've launched a modern.credentialing system for our enlisted.workforce our service has never been.more relevant your Coast Guard's found.at the intersection of great power.competition in economic prosperity.fostering maritime stability and genuine.human-to-human partnership as a service.we are rightfully proud of our ability.to lead and crop to crisis but our.greatest value is in preventing crisis.in the first place there is no agency.better suited than the United States.Coast Guard to lead in the maritime.domain and to uphold worldwide.institutions that are founded on the.principles of freedom sovereign rights.and Liberty as we enter this new decade.the number 2020 itself connotates keen.vision and I see both challenges and.opportunities confronting our service.it's an inflection point as I approach.the midpoint of my tenure as common I'm.so today I offer you a clear eye view of.our path moving forward and the.acknowledgement that we have much work.to do to achieve our goals in a.constantly changing evolving environment.we cannot remain the world's best Coast.Guard we cannot be always ready when.America needs us unless we think and act.differently unless we continually hone.our operational tradecraft unless we.continue to develop a positive culture.that promotes respect diversity and.inclusion through strong leadership at.all levels of the organization unless we.develop our people and continually earn.and maintain the public trust now let's.take a look at just how we serve just.outside here this building 754 the.national security cutters aims these.cutters are the flagship.the Coast Guard's modernized fleet with.automated weapons systems.state-of-the-art command and control.equipment and advanced sensors James.recently returned from a two-month.deployment where these modern systems.and capabilities enabled them to stop.dangerous drugs from being smuggled.that's 13,000 pounds of illicit.narcotics since the implementation of.our Western Hemisphere strategy four.years ago the men and women of the Coast.Guard have interdicted two million.that's two million pounds of pure.cocaine worth twenty six billion dollars.this vitally important work is the most.effective way to help work cartels from.trafficking their illicit products crews.like those aboard Cutter James battle.these dangerous cartels during James's.deployment their armed helicopter crews.shut out the engines of a low-profile.vessel that's a stealthy craft built for.the sole purpose of smuggling drugs in.today's introductory video you may have.noticed ensign Dorado and CIN Dorado led.a boarding team to apprehend the.suspects however once on scene they.realized the low-profile vessel was.sinking under them they quickly removed.the traffickers slowed the flooding long.enough to salvage the deadly narcotics.and preserve the critical evidence.necessary for prosecution of the drug.smugglers in fact ensign Dorado is here.with us today.ensign Dorado please stand.[Applause].outstanding work shipmate we're proud of.you your leadership skills and talents.exemplify those traits I look forward in.every coastguardsman drug cartels are.actively harming Americans and our way.of life they traffic drugs weapons.people they cause instability and.violence in Central America that drives.migrants north and their illicit.commodities destined for the United.States soil devastate American families.recent years we continue to set records.for drug-related deaths every year in.American streets this is why we serve.additionally great power competitors.like China and Russia are gaining.influence right here in the Western.Hemisphere by exploiting opportunities.amidst the instability in weak.governance that's fueled by those.transnational criminal activities our.efforts in the Western Hemisphere are.critical and we are using every tool in.our kit to combat this scourge our.network of embedded Coast Guardsmen in.the region strengthened like-minded.friends and allies and for the first.time in the history of the multi-decade.maritime drug campaign this past year.our partner nations accounted for half.of the transit zone drug interdictions.[Applause].that success is noteworthy but only a.hint of what we hope for in the future.upholding the rule of law and.dismantling these insidious cartels.further stability and enables our.Western Hemisphere partners to protect.their sovereign interests against global.competitors our offshore patrol cutters.which will become the backbone of our.modernized fleet will have a critical.role in this campaign the first in its.class Cutter Argos it's already under.construction and will be delivered in.2022 the offshore patrol cutter program.is set to deliver 25 hulls and that.fleet will ultimately comprise almost.75% of our offshore presence our NIR.Paribas Ares don't just stop at.financial entrapment of vulnerable.countries they are actively exploiting.other nations natural resources.including fish stocks in many cases.challenging the sovereignty of smaller.or less developed nations China with the.world's largest distant water fishing.fleet is one of the worst predatory.fishing offenders engaging in what we.call illegal unreported or unregulated.fishing or what's known as AI you you.this is far more than just about.conservation and sustainability this is.a national security challenge warranting.a clear response fish is an essential.protein source for over 40 percent of.the global population and fish stocks.around the world are critical to many.nations sovereignty and economic.security even by most conservative.estimates ie you fishing accounts for.more than twenty three billion dollars.of annual loss to the global economy the.United States Coast Guard could be a.global leader combating iuu fisheries.that's done by increasing partner nation.capacity international cooperation and.targeted operations to frame our.expanding efforts to counter this I you.fishing threat around the globe we're.developing a progressive ieu strategic.outlook for the coast guard we plan to.release that this summer and to enhance.maritime domain awareness across the.Pacific we are fostering a partnership.with global fishing watch which uses.cutting-edge machine learning and.artificial intelligence to visualize.track.and share data about fishing activity in.near-real-time if successful this.initiative can be scaled to our.fisheries enforcement efforts worldwide.today the United States Coast Guard.holds 16 counter IU phishing bilaterals.in the Pacific in western Africa there.we're pursuing additional agreements to.help us push back against these.destructive fishing practices that are.leaving vast expanses of the ocean and.the seabed in ruins.a recent Stimson Center report indicates.that the stop ie you fishing you musta.crease accountability we must help.coastal nations improve their maritime.domain awareness today I call upon.like-minded nations across the globe to.join us and publicly denouncing.countries and corporations that engage.in IUU fishing in enhanced enforcement.activities that fort this threat nowhere.is this more important than the.indo-pacific where we serve to uphold.America's enduring interests this swath.of oceans the epicenter of global.maritime trade in geostrategic influence.many of these Pacific Island countries.even American island territories lacked.the capability in the capacity the fully.police their sovereign waters leaving.them vulnerable to a spectrum of illicit.activities we're most concerned by the.coercive state's influence operations.intentions to construct dual use.infrastructure projects and implied.military threats to persuade other.states to heed their strategic agendas.in the face of antagonistic behavior.your United States Coast Guard offers.transparent engagement and partnership.[Applause].we aspire to remain the prefer an.enduring partner in the region tailoring.and synchronizing our services with.other like-minded partners to meet but.not overwhelm the absorptive capacity of.the nations we support and serve later.this year we will continue operation I.in gun to strengthen the community of.island nations in Oceania by pairing an.ocean-going Coast Guard buoy tender and.fast response cutters we will promote.rules-based order will build capacity.and affirm the United States positive.and enduring role in the Pacific region.and by the end of the year we are on.track to take delivery of the first to.154 fluid fast response cutters to be.homeported in Guam.these modern cutters will replace their.40-year old predecessors enhancing all.aspects of Coast Guard surface.capabilities in the region that's.including increased range sea keeping.crew size enhance cutter boats to.support their operations my commanders.intent is simple to employ our unique.authorities and capabilities to.complement not duplicate Department of.Defense efforts in 2019 last year we.deployed two national security cutters.Stratton and bertok for ten months of.uninterrupted support to the.indo-pacific combatant commander.national security cutters will again.return to the western Pacific this year.for joint operations with the Navy 7th.fleet including participation in RIMPAC.the world's largest multinational naval.exercise.the Coast Guard's also doubling down on.that human to human interaction the.bolster partner nation capacity building.last August one of our mobile training.teams from Yorktown Virginia worked.hand-in-hand with the Philippine Coast.Guard to stand up their new outboard.motor maintenance center of excellence.and last fall I met with another key.regional partner Japan who's providing.the Philippine Coast Guard with 294.meter response vessels in 2022 these.endeavors provide the Philippines.through the organic compact capability.to build and sustain their enforcement.fleet enabling them to lead regional.security efforts like the Philippines.countries around the world see why we.serve and our modeling themselves after.your United States Coast Guard.the alternative to coercive and.predatory engagement is human to human.interactions and robust partnerships.that's what we in the Coast Guard do.best.even our junior members provide an.outsize impact to our globally strategic.missions data how was make water and.equate with a legend.[Music].my family and I moved to New York from.China when I was a kid I pursued a.degree in fashion design I worked in the.industry for a couple years before I.decided I wanted to transition into.something that would allow me to travel.and experience new things of life that's.when I came upon Pittsburgh.I reported it to Shatan on February 19.and about four or five months into.working dockside we were thrown into.this huge six-month patrol going to the.Southeast Asian Seas so I'm a first.patrol I was throwing to the role of.interpreting for the US Coast Guard in.the beginning when they kind of slightly.mentioned that we're getting into the.territory where they might need me to.interpret I was like yeah okay like.whatever like they're probably not gonna.need me I'm an e3 like why would they.have me interpret you know I didn't.really believe it until the very first.pipe when they asked me to go to CIC and.I was freaking out when I interpreted my.first message and captain was sitting.right behind me I was sweating bullets.but we were transmitting a message to.the Chinese Coast Guard and they reply.back right away after I sent my message.and everybody around me was so surprised.and I was like okay and captain was like.he'll understand like it's the first.time that the Chinese school star has.replied to us.[Music].fireman's and really helped us in two.areas one was how she interacted with.China Coast Guard and China Navy ships.as we were patrolling in close proximity.with them while we were doing our UN.sanctions enforcement the other area.where she also was invaluable and got to.get off the radio and off the bridge of.the ship was on the boarding teams and.was able to interpret for us there while.we conducted law enforcement and we were.able to communicate with them only.because we had a Mandarin interpreter on.board I'm proud to serve in the Coast.Guard with such an amazing crew and I am.excited to see what the future brings.so fireman Jiang is watching today's.livestream with their Coast Guard Cutter.Stratton shipmates in Alameda California.let's recognize her incredible.contributions with another round of.applause please.and good luck at aviation maintenance.technician school fireman Jane you are.gonna become an outstanding addition to.our Coast Guard aviation community now.imagine thousands of people like fireman.Jang each applying his or her own unique.talents and contributions across the.oceania demonstrating the full.proposition of the United States the.value proposition of the United States.Coast Guard.that's why I've challenged my.headquarters staff to work with our.colleagues at the Department of State to.explore leveraging similar funding.models for Oceania that have enabled.Coast Guard operations in the Caribbean.and Central American quarters for the.past 25 years.in Oceania is but one of several.emerging geostrategic flashpoints now.let me tell you how we serve American.interests at the farthest ends of the.earth as our polar regions become more.accessible foreign competitors seek to.encroach on American sovereignty exploit.our natural resources and potentially.limit access to shipping routes the.Coast Guard operates our nation's only.icebreaker fleet countering malign.influence as our nation's most.persistent surface military presence in.the polar regions we do this with only.two cutters one heavy and one medium ice.breaker this is a woefully unacceptable.level presence in an area where we must.be a leading force presence absolutely.equals influence and we must up our game.with respect to high latitude presence.I've just returned from Antarctica in.recent weeks where I met with the crew.of the 44 year old Coast Guard Cutter.Polar Star and they're charged with.ensuring access to our national.interests in one of the most remote and.unforgiving environments on the earth.you met Lieutenant Commander cuca wits.Karen cockle wits the operations officer.aboard the Polar Star in the.introductory video each year Lieutenant.Commander Tucker wits and the crew of.Polar Star leave behind their families.during the holiday season and while.underway for their annual and artic.deployment the crew not only faces the.challenges of the harsh environment but.they must also rely on their own grit.and ingenuity to keep their aging vessel.engaged in the fight and then after.their annual deployment to Antarctica to.remain ready for the coming year they.enter a six-month drydock maintenance.period far from their families in.Seattle the good news is that both the.administration and Congress have duly.recognized the burden our Polar Star.sailors bear to meet the nation's call.that's why I'm truly grateful for their.recent support to fully fund our new.polar security cutter the first modern.heavy icebreaker to be built in the.United States in half a century.additionally the president has requested.555 million dollars in the current.fiscal 21 budget before the Congress to.fully fund our critically needed second.polar security cutter and the good news.is there's an acquisitions and funding.strategy beyond that to build the third.and today we're developing operational.requirements for medium icebreakers a.fleet of at least three of those polar.security heavy breakers and three medium.icebreakers will ensure American.sovereignty and presence in the polar.regions for decades to come.Cutter Healy our 20-year old medium.icebreaker annually deploys above the.Arctic Circle and when Healy sails this.summer he'll do so yet again without.reliable communications for large.portions of its multi-month patrol these.challenges are not limited to the Arctic.Circle with respect to communications.just last month the harsh environment of.northern Alaska.once again degraded communications.equipment in bitter cold conditions.petty officers rusty Meyer dico and.chipper Eenie from electronic systems.support detachment Kodiak traveled on.snow machines until the cold rendered.those machines inoperable they then.continued their journey by pulling their.heavily loaded sleds and dug by hand.through several feet of snow in order to.affect temporary repairs on site until.weather improves later this summer.that's common on I need my operational.commanders to be able to communicate.with every Coast Guard asset anytime.anywhere we're exploring new satellite.communications within the department.defense and partners there as well as.private industry as well as renewing.land-based communications in Alaska and.artic immune occations.are truly a whole-of-government issue we.must work together to solve our.communication blackout in the Arctic now.tremendous challenges and opportunities.remain in the polar regions and robust.partnerships are absolutely imperative.to success through strategic forums the.Coast Guard's a leader maintaining a.safe and prosperous our Arctic region.where cooperation is paramount in the.eight Arctic states rightfully set the.terms of governance and a strong US.Coast Guard will allow America to lead.at these vital frontiers like the.Pacific in the Arctic Coast Guard men.and women are also stationed else wide.across the globe in defense of our.nation today as tensions in the Middle.East remain heightened the Coast Guard.stands watch on the Arabian Gulf six.patrol boats in our advanced act.interdiction teams defend against.terrorists rogue nation states and.smugglers who destabilize the region and.we are all in with plans to begin.replacing our ageing patrol boats with.fast response cutters next year that.will expand our maritime capabilities in.support of the United States Central.Command and not only we re on the.operational front lines our maritime.engagement team trains US Navy allied.navies and Gulf coalition countries.building partner capacity the further.stabilized the Arabian Gulf and right.here in the homeland your Coast Guard.also enhances security for the first.time ever we employed Department of.Homeland Security recently.congressionally authorized counter drone.authorities to protect 130 world leaders.who gathered at the United Nations.General Assembly in New York City this.past fall likewise under delegated.Department of Defense Authority Coast.Guard Reserve petty officers helped.pioneer state-of-the-art.drone defense equipment and our maritime.force protection units in Kings Bay.Georgia and Bangor Washington these.Coast Guardsmen provide counter drone.protection for US Navy ballistic missile.submarines.and while these aforementioned programs.are funded by the Department of Defense.many of our defense contributions are.not leaving the Coast Guard on an.unsustainable path to support our.growing operational requirements in.contrast the Department of Defense is.writing this funding has grown nearly.three times as much as the Coast Guard's.over the past five years despite our.services having the same types of.writing this challenges that said I'm.grateful to the administration in.Congress for the enacted 2020 budget in.the president's 2021 budget requests.which start just sart's us on a.healthier funding trajectory in the long.term solution is to recognize the Coast.Guard's crucial role in maintaining our.national security I continue to advocate.for a return to the security and.non-security appropriations framework.which would help ensure the Coast.Guard's and funded in parity with the.rest of the military services a.community like right here in Charleston.understands just how important our.defense contributions are to the nation.and for generations the people of this.great port city have also appreciated.the importance of maritime commerce to.our nation our interconnected global.economy relies on efficient ports and.waterways over ninety percent of the.world's goods moved by the sea we are.clearly a maritime nation and our marine.transportation system generates over.thirty million jobs in five point four.trillion that's trillion dollars.annually in economic activity right here.in South Carolina your ports account for.10 percent of the jobs and gross.domestic product for the entire state.in Charleston the Coast Guard's roles.are vital to ensuring safety security.and stewardship of the maritime domain.that's the port that's along the.coastline that involves inspection.regimes for both us-flagged and foreign.ships calling on the port of Charleston.ensuring their compliance with.international regulations as well as US.regulations for operating in and out of.the ports those regulations help to.ensure the safety of the people aboard.the ships as well as the safety of the.ports and their continued viability we.ensure the fort remains viable that what.comes through the port is safe for the.United States and then from a.stewardship standpoint the Coast Guard.heads up the area committee which.develops the area contingency plan and.we exercise that on a regular basis to.ensure we're ready to respond to any.kind of a pollution event any kind of an.environmental impact to the low country.as well as an impact that might shut.down the port that's pretty much how we.sum up our role here in Charleston the.port of Charleston is important from.both an economic as well as a military.standpoint we bring Goods raw goods.materials from around the world through.the port of Charleston to manufacturing.bases around the region not just in.South Carolina the investment in.Charleston by the states and by the port.is evidenced in their growth I think.that example is something that the Coast.Guard is trying to do and sustained as.well.in South Carolina is not alone the.advantages of our nation's ports and.waterways positively affect every.American in every state this is how we.serve American prosperity.[Applause].and today we face on parallel growth in.vessel traffic and complexity within.this marine transportation system from.liquefied natural gas exports to.offshore windfarms to increasingly.sophisticated vessels these factors in.the host of others all contribute to an.unprecedented demand for Coast Guard.services additionally we see an emerging.vulnerability and the increasing cyber.attacks that are targeting our seaports.over the past year our new cyber.protection team has deployed to cities.like New York and New Orleans to aid the.intergovernmental response to malicious.cyber attacks this year to better enable.our operations we intend to refresh our.five-year-old cyber strategy and our.people are working around the clock on.waterways across our country to keep our.maritime industry safe and efficient.ensuring American shells remain stocked.and our vast needs for energy remain met.however this allure of high-paying jobs.in the private sector makes it harder.every day to fill our shortage of marine.inspectors qualified marine inspectors.who facilitate this flow of Commerce and.are typically found in our commissioned.officer ranks thankfully the talents of.our highly skilled enlisted workforce.are helping us fill this gap this year.we're expanding the enlisted marine.inspector program by 63 apprentice.positions and we're growing 17.additional inspector billets and we're.going to arm these inspectors with.enhanced tools to increase their.mobility and their effectiveness we're.testing inspect a tablet application.that provides access to Tiki Coast Guard.databases available in the field.however tools alone are not enough gaps.in training funding in recent years have.atrophied our skills in critical fields.of expertise hence we must create a.regular training cycle for marine safety.professionals to keep pace with this.increasingly complex maritime industry.pivoting to shore infrastructure every.mission begins and ends at a Coast Guard.facility unfortunately due to years of.flatlined budgets forcing trade-offs the.facilities that are men and women deploy.from and return to are crumbling around.them.40% of Coast Guard buildings are over 50.years old mold leaky roofs flooding.outdated building standards these have.all culminated in a two billion dollar.backlog of facility repairs every day we.continue to operate with antiquated.infrastructure it gets harder to protect.our modern maritime economy harder to.save those in peril harder to attract.talented men and women into our ranks.and ultimately harder to defend the.nation.take for instance stationed Niagara last.summer the crew responded to record.flooding on the Niagara River in Lake.Ontario for four months floodwaters in.the dated the station grounds the crew.pumped out 200 thousands of gallons of.water daily just to keep their station.operational despite such challenges.these dedicated Coast he still rescued.45 people and protected our northern.border but you know what it's a.different story in places like Houston.where the city was devastated by.Hurricane RV in 2017 there are modern.and resilient Coast Guard facilities.constructed with prior year's emergency.disaster meant disaster supplemental.funding withstood harvey's direct hit.enabling Coast Guard's men to save.nearly 12,000 lives this is the value.proposition of fully addressing the.Coast Guard's massive and untenable.Shore infrastructure backlog and this is.a nationwide challenge including here in.the Lowcountry Charleston similar to.other ports in the country is.experiencing unprecedented change by.2021 next year Charleston will have the.deepest Harbor on the East Coast.nationwide the Coast Guard has an.enduring responsibility to safeguard the.marine transportation system and bolster.maritime competitiveness infrastructure.improvement economic prosperity and.national security.as a future Coast Guard operational.center of gravity nowhere to these.responsibilities bring more true right.here than in Charleston here will.homeport the most capable surface assets.in our fleet including five national.security cutters in a compliment to.yet-to-be-built offshore patrol cutters.Thank You mayor.over the next five years the Coast Guard.will work that consolidate our campus.along one waterfront.this gives Charleston the potential to.grow into the largest concentration of.assets and people in the United States.Coast Guard today we're executing one.hundred and forty million dollars in.prior hurricanes supplemental funding to.start upgrading shoreside facilities but.this funding is only a downpayment.needed here in Charleston.we need an infusion of persistent.investment in the Coast Guard and right.here in this great American community is.a place to start.when dedicated coast he's like fireman.Jang and Lieutenant Commander cuca wits.returned four months at sea thousands of.miles away from family we owe them a.place to call home a home meeting.fundamental needs like sturdy piers.affordable housing and functional.support facilities that ensures they and.their shipmates are always ready.Charleston is a first stop to a.nationwide investment in our service our.facilities and our people to serve the.communities in which we live we need our.adopters like you here today to champion.this vision the Coast Guard of tomorrow.must operate beyond brick and mortar.rapid industry innovation sophisticated.adversaries are changing the very.paradigm of maritime operations in order.to meet these challenges the Coast.Guard's requires considerable advances.to our 1990s era software hardware and.analytics.years of investment trade-offs have.brought our information technology to.the brink of catastrophic failure just.this past summer over 95 of our vital.systems went offline for several days.due to a single server malfunction.impacting our ability to save United.States citizens for criminals defend our.nation and yes even to simply check our.email accounts our people will never.fail our country but our technology is.failing our people that's why in the.Coast Guard we need a tech revolution a.whole of service effort to empower our.people with an information system that.is reliable mobile and integrated.in a modern error where data generates.more revenue than oil it is crucial that.Coast Guard modernizes its data.management to help build and sustain its.future force today I'm proud to release.our tech revolution roadmap to secure.the services readiness in digital.modernization yet another example of how.we serve our Coast Guard people this.revolution starts now in 2020 we'll.increase the services external internet.speeds by 50 times in double major.cutter connectivity with planned.upgrades over the next three years and.we're placing all of our IT equipment on.an industry standard replacement cycle.reducing the risk of critical failures.in addressing the long term problems of.deferred maintenance this spring we'll.also transition the service to Microsoft.Office 365 in the cloud to increase.email reliability during both day to day.in crisis response efforts not only that.but aux data is on schedule to deploy.this April another cloud-based user.friendly system to manage the.outstanding work done by our highly.capable 24,000 member volunteer auxilary.force in fact the aux data procurement.team who is watching today's livestream.at headquarters miss Brenda oberholser.Lieutenant Nicholas Frederickson.lieutenant Carl Stokes and miss Chandra.concen just learned the Homeland.Security today's federal acquisition.Excellence Award for the innovative.procurement techniques that will deliver.this critical software in just over four.months.[Applause].while we've developed this new roadmap.to a more technologically advanced and.effective Coast Guard we need an.injection of funding now closing our.existing 300 million dollar annual IT.shortfall is an important step to.modernize the Coast Guard's technology.landscape however the Coast Guard is not.waiting for tomorrow we're placing our.talented men and women at the key.intersections of Technology mission and.innovation just last month we cut the.ribbon on the blue technology center of.expertise in San Diego to better connect.the Coast Guard with the tremendous.government academic and industry.innovation ecosystem this Center will.create a unique pipeline for the rapid.implementation of new maritime.technologies into Coast Guard operations.around the globe in this summer the.Coast Guard will sign a contingent of.our brightest minds to the defense.innovation unit in Silicon Valley to.identify capabilities ready for.accelerated deployment to solve a host.of defense and homeland security.problems and in this cradle of.innovation last year I had the privilege.to personally meet with CEO Tim Cook at.Apple headquarters while our industries.are quite different.our purpose is similar do the best for.our people provide the highest level of.service and make a positive impact in.the world much of this starts with.technology that is why I believe a.wholesale investment will enable our.talented people to carry out their.missions across the maritime domain.today and tomorrow these dedicated men.and women are why readiness remains my.top priority for the Coast Guard and a.key component to ready this is building.and sustaining a robust talent.management enterprise establishing the.Coast Guard as an employer of choice.talent management is both our most.pressing challenge and our greatest.opportunity attracting incentivizing.retaining our best talent requires us to.think about our Coast Guard families as.well for instance Congress recently.authorized the military to reimburse.professional licensing costs for spouses.and the Coast Guard is leading the.six armed services and the number of.spouses reimbursed but despite some.successes our workforce also faces some.challenges such as the lack of.accessible an affordable childcare.across the nation.to help our people we partnered with the.Navy to change our childcare subsidy.program unfortunately this transition.created an enrollment backlog slowing.payments to our members however we've.instituted multiple improvements and the.Navy recently had his staff to address.this backlog as of today we have more.than 1,600 children enrolled that's.nearly 500 more than under the previous.program.to lead in operations in an uncertain.future requires us to harness the full.potential of diverse backgrounds in.original thinking we must all build an.inclusive culture that not only attracts.the best of America's diverse population.but fosters an environment that.encourages them to stay a coast guard.where every person understands that.inclusion and diversity our mission.imperatives where every Coast Guardsman.understands that these imperatives are.only enhanced and strengthened through.the foundations of strong leadership.leaders are found at every level in our.service during Hurricane Dorian you may.have seen our air crews and cutter crews.on the news but you didn't see the hero.and the hanger a mission support expert.who facilitated our whole of Coast Guard.response in the wake of this most deadly.storm Dorian the most powerful storm to.ever hit the Bahamas called its way.through the islands with wind speeds of.a hundred and eighty pounds Brown no one.I think anticipated that Doran would be.so ferocious and that it would last for.so long.the Coast Guard says it has completed.more than 200 missions and those people.who are saved from some of those.hard-hit areas were brought right here.to this command post near the Nassau.Airport our operations center here at.the u.s. embassy and Nassau became.overwhelmed sk2 Ford came to me and said.how can I help and I needed her at the.airport.I needed a Coast Guard liaison at the.airport to be that that conduit between.the triage center and the Coast Guard.helicopters that were landing on an.hourly basis as soon as that first.helicopter landed it was that organized.chaos and the tempo just picked up.immediately.we're staged at Odyssey one of the local.airports in Nassau and we have a triage.center first response center running.through one of the hangars to hear.primarily my job is coordinating.logistics and flights for personnel.supplies medical supplies food to go.down to Abaco and Freeport and getting.information such as personnel injuries.if it's urgent if it's emergency what.the medevac information is and passing.it on to triage to make sure that.they're ready for the incoming injuries.and personality there's no way that we.could have come in here and effectively.dropped off people then able to go back.out and continue doing but our job is if.she hadn't done what she did or he'd.gone well above where she was what I.thought was capable to do she directly.affected many lives.my definition of a hero would just be.somebody that it would go their way to.do everything that they can to you know.save somebody's life the crews the.pilots the nurses everybody played their.part as a hero my mom.[Music].[Music].he wrote to me is an ordinary person.doing extraordinary things and that's.what I'd answer for now.our efforts must be focused on.recruiting retaining truly inspirational.and talented people like Petty Officer.Ford this begins with a better.understanding of why our people serve.this past May we launched a two-year.holistic underrepresented minority study.with preliminary results due this June.this study will provide valuable insight.into how we can strengthen our culture.of respect an issue so important that.I've extended that initial two-year.Charter for the personal readiness task.force that was brought on board in 2018.so we can accelerate the pace of change.informed by this study's initial.findings but this is only one part of a.greater plan next month we'll launch a.four year diversity and inclusion action.plan to provide leaders at every level.with the skills to realize the full.potential of our workforce in the year.to come you'll also see the rollout of a.workforce 2030 action plan to better.position our service to meet future.personnel readiness needs and challenges.I'm committed to applying knowledge.learned in order to solve our greatest.personal problems now for instance the.2019 woman's retention study identified.that our workforce.lacks a centralized and accessible.communication platform to get the.information to our employees that's why.we are launching my coast guard this.June a comprehensive mobile.communications hub for our entire Coast.Guard community.in responding to feedback from the field.we've improved the Coast Guard's.meritorious advancement program now for.the first time in our history every.district commander has the authority to.select and meritoriously advanced some.of the most talented people amongst our.ranks this is one way we can honor an.individual's embodiment of our core.values similarly we owe it to the.cornerstone of what makes our service.great for our people to memorialize the.extraordinary achievements of our past.present and future workforces and I look.for kicked forward to show cast the.showcasing the rich history and heroism.of all Coast Guardsmen in the National.Coast Guard Museum scheduled to open in.New London Connecticut in 2024.collectively all of these talent.management initiatives empower our.people to pursue and achieve success in.the process an optimized Coast Guard.mission excellence.[Applause].there is no better return on investment.than the United States Coast Guard and I.am grateful for both the.administration's and the Congress's.support for our new assets which provide.unprecedented capability now we need the.matching resources to effectively.operate and support the Coast Guard that.the nation has built these investments.are essential mission enablers ensuring.our operational success today and.revolutionising the way we conduct.operations in the future every day I am.inspired I'm impressed and I am humbled.by our coasties who put the needs of.American public first men and women who.lead during crisis whether it's a.hurricane response massive flooding or a.capsized vessel as a rescue swimmer the.Train like crazy.because you need to be ready.when you get the call.I think we got three or four people.severely injured I don't know how they'd.get on board I think they're gonna need.a helo proof moment that we got the call.for the golden ray I was actually on.duty we heard that 25 people were in the.water and that was pretty much the only.information that we had and you're.getting your gear on and getting ready.the things that are going through your.mind you're just trying to trying to.play out every scenario you can based on.the information that you have just to.try to prepare yourself for what you.might might come upon.getting on scene we saw the container.ship pretty much flipped over on its.side the other helicopter told us that.there were still people on the bridge.wing we talked as a crew and decided.that they would put me down onto the.ship and I actually used the fire hose.like a rope and pretty much repelled.down the fire hose into the bridge so.that I could make contact with the.captain in the harbor pilot he was able.to sift through the chaos of the scene.and prioritize and execute his mission I.retrieved the fire hose and swung an end.over to him because he was wearing a.life jacket I thought okay just slide.down the hose to the very bottom and.then he could climb out through the.opposite door down to the water where.there were small boats waiting and so.that's what he ended up doing I ended up.tying loops in the hose about an arm's.length apart on each one from the point.where the captain was up to my position.and told him to climb it.and once he was close to me grabbed him.and pulled him out.[Music].if they were not there then I may not be.here to provide for my family and serve.the state of Georgia I'm just a Miss the.Grateful certainly one of the standouts.that night was AST to Nate Newberg.he absolutely embodies the core values.of the Coast Guard and his character and.performance were on display on that.night.[Music].he certainly is a hero.[Music].video soon Newberg.pretty austere Newberg truly is a hero.the next generation of the Coast Guard.men and women need strong leaders coming.up through the ranks leaders who excel.in the face of adversity and leaders who.embody our core values of Honor respect.and devotion to duty pitty Austin.Newberg here in the audience and petty.officer Ford who was watching in the.Bahamas please stand.in honor of our new meritorious.advancement program I hereby advance.Petty Officer Emily Ford in petty.officer Nathan Newberg the first class.petty officers in the United States.Coast Guard.[Applause].Nathan congratulations Emily if you're.watching in the
