The article presents information on various activities and programs of the U.S. Coast Guard in 2007, and the role played by its commandant admiral Thad Allen in them. In 2007, the Coast Guard seized a record $4.7 billion worth of cocaine, rescued over 6,000 immigrants, and surpassed one million lives saved. Allen has launched a campaign of modernization called the Deepwater program in response to the deteriorating material conditions, an overstressed workforce, and increasing mission challenges.
