The Creed of the United States Coast Guardsman was written in 1938 by Vice Admiral Harry G. Hamlet, who served as Commandant of the Coast Guard from 1932 to 1936. The Creed has been described as contract an individual makes with the Coast Guard by former Commandant Thad Allen. According to Commandant Robert Papp, the Creed describes the duties and responsibilities that binds the group of Coast Guardsmen together as "shipmates".
