Happy birthday to the members, family and friends of the United States Coast Guard!
In January of 1915, 93 years ago, the Coast Guard was named a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. Specifically, Title 14 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) details the matter.
Did you know that the Coast Guard has been involved in every major war that the United States has been a part of since the Civil War, which actually predates the 1915 establishment in the U.S.C. It is, in fact, our Nation’s oldest and continuous sea-going service.
To read more history on the Coast Guard office, you can visit the CG Historian’s page on the official site for the USCG.
