Evaluation of the adequacy of Navy planning for use of Coast Guard resources in wartime raised concern regarding the Navy's plans for utilization of Coast Guard assets in other than their normal peacetime roles, readiness of Coast Guard equipment with potential Navy wartime missions, and readiness of Coast Guard personnel, both active duty and reserves, to perform their wartime missions. The Navy and the Coast Guard have recently initiated a number of actions to more fully evaluate the potential wartime role of the Coast Guard and to improve their interservice coordination.
