New Coast Guard commandant Admiral Linda Fagan told lawmakers that the U.S. Coast Guard is facing a wide range of personnel issues.

According to Military Times, the commandant told Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation House subcommittee members that “My highest priority as commandant is to transform our talent management system, which has not significantly changed in 75 years, to better serve our people in the 21st century,” said Fagan.

According to Fagan, the Coast Guard is still short of meeting its upcoming goal of 4,200 new enlistments but has hired 15 new recruiters to help bring in more talent.

She also told the lawmakers that more needs to be done to provide Coast Guard personnel with affordable housing and childcare options.
