U.S. Coast Guard: How do coastguards search for and recover bodies of individuals swept out to sea?
US Coast Guard search operations for persons in the water (PIW's) utilize software from a program called SAROP's which takes in historical water current patterns, on scene weather/winds/currents, time of day/illumination level, size of person, what the person is wearing, whether or not the person has a flotation device and the type of aircraft or vessel doing the search. Once on scene a Coast Guard asset can deploy a data marker Bouy which can then be relocated its drift can then be used to better create a search pattern. The amount of time the Coast Guard will search for a PIW depends on the water temperature and what the PIW is wearing. A PIW with a flotation device in the Caribbean might survive a couple of days while a PIW near Alaska with no survival gear will be hypothermic in under an hour. The success of these searches largely depends the accuracy of the time/location of where the person fell off the vessel/washed out to sea. If the original information isn't very accurate then the search plan will be an educated guess. In most cases the Coast Guard doesn't search for bodies. A search action plan will be executed through such a time as it would be reasonable to expect the PIW to still be alive. Also of note a person with a 406 emergency positioning radio beacon (Epirb) will be found very quickly also a person with a strobe light at night or a mirror during the day is very easy to locate if we are in the general vicinity!

Is there a plan to refit US Coast Guard vessels with more weapons in case of another large global war?
Yes, in the sense that most larger USCG vessels—the ocean-going cutters—can be fitted with additional weapons beyond what they normally carry in the course of their “peacetime” duties. Usually these would be in the form of additional machine guns and light artillery like the “Bushmaster” 25-mm and 30-mm chain guns.Bushmaster Chain GunNote, however, that because the Coast Guard’s primary missions (other than in wartime) include drug interdiction and anti-piracy and anti-smuggling operations rather than ship to ship combat, most USCG vessels already carry larger numbers of standard machine guns than their Navy counterparts, at least during “peacetime”. I put that term in quotes because if you consider exchanging machine gun fire with fleeing drug runners shooting AK-47s to be “combat”, then there really is no “peacetime” for the Coast Guard!In terms of a genuine, high-intensity conflict—an actual shooting war against peer or near-peer opponents—then some cutters, particularly the “High Endurance Cutters”, the Legend class, would certainly receive additional, high end weaponry. This would probably include Harpoon anti-ship missiles and perhaps additional anti-aircraft weaponry (some sort of MANPAD like the famous “Stinger” shoulder-fired missile) and anti-submarine equipment.National Security CutterUSCGC Waesche (WMSL-751), A New National Security Cutter, At Sea. The Eight Ships of This Class Are Roughly Equivalent to US Navy Frigates and are The Largest and Most Heavily Armed Cutters in the US Coast Guard.In most cases, militarized Coast Guard cutters would be tasked with duties in low-to-medium threat areas such as patrolling US ports and so on, the idea being to free up most or all of the standard combat ships for duty in the highest intensity combat zones. But in the event of the Navy suffering significant losses, it would not be a surprise to see cutters in the line of battle alongside their Navy cousins. In this scenario, cutters would be considered roughly equivalent to frigates and corvettes in terms of their firepower and mission. (In fact, the USN is currently considering a proposal from the same yards that produce the National Security Cutter for a frigate based largely on that platform.) It should also be noted that in the event of a general or global war, modern enemy submarines would certainly be attempting to penetrate American ports, and so even these “lower threat areas” would likely be combat zones. Thus the Coast Guard would probably be involved in direct combat with enemy vessels even in parts of the world that are far from the nominal battlefields.
How often are U.S. Coast Guard units or individuals sent abroad?
It depends on your definition of 'abroad.' Most larger Coast Guard cutters (Medium Endurance, High Endurance, and the new National Security Cutters, just to name a few) constantly go into international waters on patrols to conduct LE (law enforcement, counter narcotics, counter migrant, etc.) missions and the like. In terms of going to waters off of another continent, besides North America or South America, not very often at all. Realize that the majority of Coast Guard missions are intended to be domestic and therefore almost all of the Coast Guard's resources are located and used within the borders and waters of the United States. That being said, there are many specialized units that comprise the new "Deployable Operations Group" (DOG), which was formed post-9/11 in order to create CG forces that could operate alongside the U.S. Navy in International Waters. One of the main ways that these forces (namely MSST, LEDET, and MSRT Teams) are used is on Navy destroyers and cruisers in places like the Arabian Gulf and the Indian Ocean/Somali coast. The Navy has a lot more ships capable of going out to sea for months at a time than the Coast Guard does. However, international code provides that the U.S. Coast Guard is the only federal entity that can board an internationally flagged vessel in international waters. That means that when the Navy sees a suspicious vessel, they can hoist the Coast Guard Ensign and send a boarding team with CG/USN personnel to inspect the vessel. These teams that comprise the DOG are mainly used for conducting operations that insure maritime commerce in unstable waters. Most members of units in the DOG (PSUs, MSST, MSRT, LEDET, etc.) currently end up spending a good portion of their careers overseas. However, if you are not a part of these units and are stationed at an afloat or shore unit you will not spend any (if a little) time in areas like Iraq, unless it is for humanitarian relief efforts, etc. Mainly cutters will deploy to places like the Arctic and Caribbean for missions and they might have an aviation detachment onboard. During the invasion of Iraq and after 9/11, several Coast Guard units, including cutters and a helicopter, were deployed to the Arabian Gulf in order to make sure that the maritime areas remained stable and so that commerce (oil) could safely pass through. This answer is based on the current world situation.
