The Officer - Fall 2016 - 47

(OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and as far inland as the landlocked country of Afghanistan, where they have been maintaining a redeployment assistance and inspection detachment (RAID) since 2003. During OIF, members of Coast Guard port security units- made up predominantly of Reservists-assumed missions from the Marine Corps. These Coast Guardsmen had responsibility for watching over enemy prisoners of war on two Iraqi oil platforms. The Coast Guard also played a vital role in patrolling the northern Arabian Gulf, keeping Iranians and Iraqis away from oil platforms. It was here in 2004 that the first Coast Guardsman was killed in action since the Vietnam War. Petty Officer Nathan Bruckenthal and two Navy sailors lost their lives when they intercepted and inspected a boat packed with explosives and manned by suicide bombers off the coast of Iraq. During OEF, members of the Coast Guard patrolled perimeter roads at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. While on patrol, Coast Guardsmen drove casualty evacuation vehicles, standing at the ready to respond quickly in the event of an attack. RAID members were instrumental in inspecting shipping containers throughout all of Afghanistan. The incredible volume of logistics movements within the country, and globally to and from Afghanistan, presented a critical need for intermodal transportation and security experts. RAID members increased container security inspections and performed container repairs, reducing the cost of logistics and improving overall process flow-often in high-risk and combat conditions. RAID personnel were carefully selected for this demanding work. A nod to the strength and quality of the Coast Guard Reserve is that RAID members were drawn from the ranks of Coast Guard Reservists because of their unique combination of Coast Guard and civilian experience and expertise in law enforcement or emergency response. From catching drug runners and protecting vessels in the uncharted and constantly changing polar region to conducting RAID operations in a landlocked South Asian warzone, America's Coast Guard has transformed itself. It is building and demonstrating its capability to perform the complex and demanding transportation security missions presented by today's threatening realities. Capt. Brett Korade is the Naval services director for the Reserve Officers Association. Megan Myers served as ROA's legislative intern in summer 2016; she is a senior at the University of California, Berkeley, majoring in society and environment with an emphasis on U.S. environmental politics.
