The Coast Guard is the only military service now organized under the Department of Homeland Security. The Coast Guard’s MWR program is similar to that of the other Services, but on a smaller scale. The mission of the Coast Guard MWR program is to uplift the spirits of the Coast Guard Family and be an essential element of Coast Guard readiness and retention through customer-owned and driven MWR programs and services around the world. The MWR programs play a vital role in support of mission readiness and retention of not only our military members but also the entire Coast Guard family through a diverse group of activities and programs. TAKING CARE OF THOSE WHO PROTECT AND DEFEND is our vision and guides everything that we do!
