MILITARY

COAST GUARD

The Coast Guard is unique because rather than being a part of the Department of Defense, it is a part of the Department of Homeland Security. However, the Coast Guard is considered a military service and in time of need the president can transfer any Coast Guard to the Department of the Navy.
