ABSTRACT

Coast Guard Patrol Boat Operations in the Arabian Gulf: The Way Forward in the Post-Operation Iraqi Freedom Era   [open pdf - 801KB]

From the thesis abstract: "This study proposes there is need for continued Coast Guard Patrol Boat presence in the Central Command area of responsibility (AOR), beyond the proposed conclusion of Operation NEW DAWN and the removal of U.S. forces from Iraq at the end of 2011, and further proposes the best course of action for utilizing the Patrol Boats in Central Command is to complete the security and interdiction mission and protect the Iraqi gas and oil platforms before transferring this mission to the Iraqi Navy, and then transitioning to Theater Security Cooperation and Maritime Law Enforcement efforts throughout the Central Command theater."
