Coast Guard Core Values
- Honor – Absolute integrity is our standard. A Coast Guard member demonstrates honor in all things: never lying, cheating, or stealing. We do the right thing because it is the right thing – all the time.
- Respect – We value the dignity of people: whether a stranded boater, an immigrant, or a fellow Coast Guard member, we treat each other with fairness and respect.
- Devotion to duty – A Coast Guard member is dedicated to five maritime security roles: Maritime Safety (Search and Rescue), Maritime Security, Protection of Natural Resources, Maritime Mobility (Waterways Transportation), and National Defense. We are loyal and accountable to the public trust. We welcome the responsibility.
