Last month, Rear Adm. Paul Thomas, assistant commandant for prevention policy, sat down for an interview with Marine News Magazine to provide his insights on a broad range of Coast Guard safety and regulatory matters. As a courtesy, Maritime Commons is providing a link to the article, in an effort to keep our subscribers informed about Coast Guard issues impacting the maritime industry. Providing the link in no way implies official Coast Guard endorsement of any publication or product.
