Vice Commandant of the United States Coast Guard

The Vice Commandant serves as the second-in-command of the United States Coast Guard.

Since 1929, 28 officers have served as Vice Commandant, or, as the position was referred to before 1972, Assistant Commandant. The title of the position was changed effective October 2, 1972, pursuant to Pub.L. 92–451. This position has been historically held by a vice admiral until the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2015 elevated the statutory rank for the position to admiral.
