Regardless of rank or time in service, all Coast Guard personnel find this manual to be essential to their professional development. Its value as a ready source of guidance is attested to by generations of men and women who have made it a part of their personal libraries since 1952, when the first edition was published. Today, it remains the basic training manual for entry-level personnel at enlisted and officer training schools. This ninth 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 equipment. Updated information is offered on shipboard life, maritime law enforcement, environmental health, shore duty, and physical fitness, among other subjects. Continued emphasis is placed on safety of life, protection of national assets, and enforcement of federal statutes. Appendixes include a brief history of the Coast Guard as well as a study guide for the servicewide exam.
