Coast Guard Celebrates 221st Birthday

The United States Coast Guard was founded on August 4, 1790, when the first Congress authorized the construction of ten vessels to enforce tariff and trade laws and prevent smuggling. Known variously as the Revenue Marine and the Revenue Cutter Service, the Coast Guard expanded in size and responsibilities as the nation grew. Happy Birthday & Thank You!
