Full Description:

Regardless of rank or time in service, all Coast Guard personnel find this manual an essential part of their professional development. First published in 1952, it remains the basic training manual for both enlisted personnel and officers alike.

This tenth edition is designed to bring the reader into the twenty-first century of training and operations. New materials and photographs fully describe the modern Coast Guard and its platforms. Updated information is offered on Coast Guard missions, organization, and history, among other subjects. Continued emphasis is placed on safety of life, protection of national assets, and defending the homeland. From surviving basic training to facts about the Coast Guard’s fleet of cutters and aircraft, this manual is an indispensible guide to the world’s best Coast Guard.

Jim Dolbow is a veteran congressional defense staffer, Coast Guard Reserve officer and a graduate of the U.S. Naval War College and The Institute of World Politics.

~ Praise for The Coast Guardsman's Manual ~

“The author’s academic and military experience and writing skills make this manual of instruction and tradition he dedicated to “Team Coast Guard” an extraordinary resource and great read.”
