The Coast Guard is responsible for maritime patrol and policing, operating small boats, cutters and a few aircraft. It was originally the primary maritime combat force for the Commonwealth until in 1963 the governor signed an executive order creating the Naval National Guard. Ironically, the Coast Guard is almost as powerful as the Navy.
