 Extracts
I submit the following report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1926.

RETIREMENT OF GENERAL COE.
Major General Frank W. Coe retired from active service, at his ownrequest, March 19, 1926. He had served as Chief of Coast Artillery for-seven year,s and nine months, this period covering the most active por-tion of our participation in the WorId War, the demobilization andreorganization of the Army following the war, and the varions adjust-ments incident to that reorganization. During
his
incumbency theactivities of the Coast Artillery Corps were extended from harbor de-fense only to include railway, antiaircraft and trench artillery, tractor-.drawn artillery in coast defense, and sound ranging.I assumed charge of the Coast Artillery Corps January IS, 1926,pursuant to Par. 9, S. O. 12, War Department, c. s., and became Chief -ofCoast Artillery March 20, 1926. It will be my endeavor to maintainthe same high morale throughout the Corps as did my predecessor andto continue the broad spirit of cooperation with other branches of theArmy that was so marked a feature of his administration.2. The missions of the Coast Artillery Corps have undergone no changeduring the past year

PERSO~~EL.
a.
In the annual report of the Chief of Coast Artillery for 1924,there was given an exhaustive analysis of the strength required for theCoast Artillery to enable
it
to fulfill its mission under existing mobiliza-tion plans. This analysis indicated a shortage of 19,557 enlisted menand 677 officers. No material progress has since been made towardmeeting
this
requirement.
