While serving on a 210-foot medium endurance Coast Guard cutter as the independent duty yeoman and executive officer, we didn’t just lead the administrative team on board, we were the administrative team. When the poor internet connection prevented us from completing even the simplest online tasks, we decided to write this essay, to bring attention to the administrative struggles being experienced on board cutters. It does not have to be that way.
