    Does anyone have any good information or links to information on the financial state of the USCG? Anything related to the USCG as a whole and or the USCGA, especially as it compares to the USN and USNA?

    Thanks for the reply. I watched the video (good stuff). So if this is the budget, when does it get approved? How does all that work?

    If you want your eyes to go glassy, have fun reading at the link below. The PPBE is the massive, ponderous budgeting lifecycle process whose maw thrives on staff officers at headquarters staffs and provides full careers for civilian budget specialists.
