Fagan, an alumnus of the Transnational Security Cooperation (TSC) course 19-1, was honored as the first female Service Chief of any U.S. military service on June 1, 2022. In her remarks to the 103 Fellows, she expounded on the U.S. Coast Guard’s various responsibilities, which include search and rescue, maritime safety, environmental protection, port security, and Illegal, Unregulated, Unreported (IUU) Fishing. Fagan emphasized that to enforce Maritime security in the Indo-Pacific region it will take a “unity of effort.” “Together, we strengthen maritime governance,” said Fagan. “There is not any one of us in this room that has all the authority, capacity, and capability to counter some of the threats facing us collectively.”
