As an integrated workforce, the Coast Guard Reserve shares the core values
of the Coast Guard
The Honor, Respect, and Devotion to Duty.
In addition to the Coast Guard's core values, the Coast Guard Reserve's tenets are
Professionalism, Preparedness, and Patriotism.
I am a Coast Guardsman
I serve the people of the United States
I will protect them
I will defend them
I will save them
I am their shield
For them I am Semper Paratus
I live the Coast Guard Core Values
I am proud to be a Coast Guardsman
We are the United States Coast Guard
From Aztec Shore to Arctic Zone
To Europe and Far East.
The Flag is carried by our ships,
In times of war and peace.
And never have we struck it yet
In spite of foe-men's might,
Who cheered our crews and cheered again,
For showing how to fight.
We're always ready for the call,
We place our trust in Thee.
Through surf and storm and howling gale,
High shall our purpose be.
"Semper Paratus" is our guide,
Our fame, our glory, too.
To fight to save or fight and die,
Aye! Coast Guard we are for you!
