Happy birthday to the U.S. Coast Guard.  Born on the fourth of August in 1790, the Coast Guard is our Nation's oldest continuous seagoing service. Th Coast Guard has been the premier force in maritime safety, security, and stewardship for 231 years.  Today, they continue their noble mission of saving lives, protecting American coasts and ports, and guarding U.S. interests overseas.

CG HC-130For more than two centuries the Coast Guard has held fast to the core values of honor, respect, and devotion to duty since the Revolution, through World War II, Vietnam, and in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Today, we honor their service, sacrifices, and unique contribution to our nation.
