United States Coast Guard Birthday

August 4, 2016 all-day
United States Coast Guard Birthday

The Coast Guard is one of the oldest organizations of the federal government. Established in 1790, the Coast Guard served as the nation’s only armed force on the sea until Congress launched the Navy Department eight years later.  Since then, the Coast Guard has protected the United States throughout its long history and served proudly in every one of the nation’s conflicts.  The Coast Guard exists to defend and preserve the United States. They protect the personal safety and security of our people; the marine transportation system and infrastructure; our natural and economic resources; and the territorial integrity of our nation–from both internal and external threats, natural and man-made. The Coast Guard protects these interests in U.S. ports, inland waterways, along the coasts, and on international waters.
