US Coast Guard ISC Cleveland does not have a very long history. The site was commissioned in the summer of 1996. However, the command is much older. The same goes for multiple other centers around the United States. Some of them were established around World War II. This one is relatively new and was established with four different divisions. The two most important were the Force Optimization – which also dealt with the training sessions – and the Comptroller. The other two were Personnel Services and the Worklife division. The Personnel Services office was more popular for the retired or reserve military troops.


Over the past couple of decades, this installation was taken through a major restructuring process. The office is now split into two significant units. The Health Safety division and Personnel Service division. The Personnel Service division handles most of the activities and requests.


The primary mission of ISC Cleveland – and all the other similar centers – is to support the United States Coast Guard. Each center has a particular area to deal with. This one is responsible for Ohio only. It supports all military and civilian actions taken by the US Coast Guard members. It also supports the veterans and the retired personnel. Officials try to provide a great experience for all members who require bureaucratic papers for particular actions.


In order to aerate the actions on site, the officials of ISC Cleveland have computerized most of the internal systems. The members can use the official website to request particular documents. For many papers, they will still have to complete Form 180 – it can be downloaded, printed, completed and just left at the office. These actions make things a lot faster and more comfortable.
