Founded on August 4th, 1790 as the US Revenue-Marine to collect customs duties at sea ports, the United States Coast Guard is the coastal defense force for the United States. The Coast Guard is unique in its’ ability to operate in both domestic and international waters, depending on what department it is operating under. Search and Rescue missions, coastal defense, and maritime law enforcement are some of the Coast Guards’ main duties. Todays’ Coast Guard that we know was formed on January 28th, 1915 by a merger of the US Revenue Cutter Service and the US Life Saving Service. There are nearly 20 million Veterans of the United States Military with US Coast Guard Veterans making up a portion of that number. The Coast Guard has been involved in a large number of major conflicts the United States has fought in dating back to the founding of our country, to include the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Mexican-American War, Civil War, Spanish-American War, World War 1, World War 2, Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, Iraq War, War in Afghanistan, and the GWOT (Global War on Terrorism).
