Joint Center for Operational Analysis and Lessons Learned Quarterly Bulletin: September 2004 [open pdf - 2MB]
"This issue of the JCOA-LL Bulletin is focused on the USCG, and each article tells a different aspect of their mission. The first two articles are an introduction by Vice Admiral Crea, Commander Coast Guard Atlantic Area, and an overview of the USCG today by the Commandant of the Coast Guard, Admiral Collins. These are followed by several articles on the response of the USCG to the terrorist attacks on 11 September 2001, and their role in homeland defense under the newly formed Department of Homeland Security, and as a part of the US Northern Command team in securing our shores and combating terrorism. The next four articles tell the story of the USCG in OIF and detail the lessons learned in supporting the war and in post-conflict reconstruction efforts. The next article provides the lessons learned in the most recent effort in Haiti, where the Coast Guard was designated as the MCC during the migrant operations. And the final article gives us a perspective of the lessons learned during the Viet Nam conflict, where the USCG deployed a number of cutters to assist in both port and navigation operations."
