This testimony compilation is from a May 14, 2013 hearing, "FY14 Coast Guard Budget," before the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations. From the testimony of Admiral Robert J. Papp, Jr.: "This year marks our 223rd year of protecting those on the sea, protecting the Nation from threats delivered by the sea, and protecting the sea itself. The Coast Guard is the Nation's maritime first responder. We are vested with unique authorities, equipped with capable cutters, boats, aircraft and infrastructure, and are composed of the best people the Nation has to offer. We are 'Semper Paratus' - 'Always Ready' to meet the Nation's evolving maritime safety, security and stewardship needs. We are locally based, nationally deployed and globally connected. I am here today to discuss the Coast Guard's FY 2014 Budget Request. Before discussing the details of the request, I would like to take this opportunity to highlight some of the Coast Guard's recent operational successes, and our value and role in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and in service to the Nation."
