U.S. Coast Guard Birthday

August 4, 2023 marks the 233rd Birthday of the United States Coast Guard.

“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.”
