This article focuses on the cooperation between the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard. The U.S. Navy and Coast Guard have a tradition of collaboration that goes back more than two centuries to their origins as sea services. The Coast Guard postponed decommissioning 13 coastal patrol ships and offered them with crews for homeland security missions in ports, harbors, and coastal areas. The two services also met to align homeland security, defense roles, and other responsibilities. Working with the Coast Guard, the Navy is developing a global intelligence picture to track ship movements at sea.
