This is the March 10, 2020 hearing "International Role of the United States Coast Guard" held before the House Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. From the opening statement of Sean Patrick Maloney: "Welcome to today's hearing on the international role of the United States Coast Guard. [...] The Coast Guard has a longstanding history of international involvement, and has played a crucial role in every American military conflict since its inception in 1790. While its military service is obvious, the Coast Guard's diverse mission set also makes it distinctively qualified to advance America's global interests and exert international influence. In fact, the Coast Guard's current international presence is focused on nonmilitary capacity building and strategic partnerships. [...] So I look forward to hearing from today's witnesses on the international role of the Coast Guard, where there should be a larger presence, and the ways in which Congress can best support that mission." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Daniel B. Abel, David Balton, Stephen E. Flynn, and Amy E. Searight.
