"I could not be more grateful for each of our 88,000 active duty, reserve, civil service and auxiliary members - a
predisposed to put Service before self."
Adm. Paul Zukunft
THE ONLY MILITARY SERVICE IN
THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, WE:
ENSURE NATIONAL SECURITY
From projecting U.S. sovereignty in the polar regions to protecting critical infrastructure ashore, our agility as both a military and law enforcement service allows us to combat a wide array of threats to our homeland.
Using our unique authorities and capabilities, we build and enforce a maritime governance regime that shuts down illicit pathways. We push out our borders to keep threats far from U.S. shores.
SAFEGUARD ECONOMIC SECURITY
Whether from physical or cyber threats, we protect and enable more than $4.5 trillion of economic activity and 250,000 American jobs that depend on an incredible national asset - our Nation's ports and waterways.
