    They used to be under the Dept. of Trans. Now they are a part of the Dept. of Homeland Security.

    Still, not a part of the Department of Defence. But I do think they are considered a part of the Armed Forces.

    As I recall there's actually a bunch of them in the Persian Gulf doing Port Security wherever USN ships dock plus a 8 or 10 ships running around that area.

    coast guard is currently under the dept. of homeland security. however the coast guard has been a part of every major war, and conflict that the U.S. has been involved in. A coast guard officer was in command of the flag ship on d-day, and coasties drove the landing craft on d-day. currently we are in irac servering in port security and conducting boardings world wide. at home our mission is SAR or search-and-rescue, and maritime law enforcement.
