The February issue of the US Naval Institute Proceedings has three articles of particular interest to the Coast Guard. Two are available to non-members
- “Shift the Coast Guard to the DOD,” by Jim Dolbow and Captain Jim Howe, USCG (ret.)
- “America’s Arctic Imperative,” by former Commandant, Admiral Robert J. Papp, Jr. (ret.)
The third is behind the membership firewall.
“The Coast Guard Needs More Than Another Icebreaker,” by LCdr. Shawn Lansing, USCG
Recently Proceedings has added a new feature, “World’s Coast Guard” again by Jim Dolbow. The February issue looks at the revival of the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard. This is also behind the membership firewall.
(Jim Dolbow is a Coast Guard reservist and was editor of the Coast Guardsman’s Manual, 10th edition, published by the Naval Institute Press. On a personal note, he also encouraged me to get into blogging.)
