Papp: No plans for more Coasties in Arctic | Navy Times | navytimes.com

Arctic sea lanes may be staying open longer and traffic in the frigid waters may be increasing, but the Coast Guard’s new 10-year plan for Arctic missions won’t send more Coasties to the region or establish a year-round presence, the service’s top officer said.

The service’s seasonal, mobile approach has been “tested and proven … over the last several years,” Commandant Adm. Bob Papp said when he released the Coast Guard’s Arctic Strategy on May 21. “That will be our approach in the coming decade.”
