Although the US Coast Guard is the smallest of the United States Armed Forces, the job it performs is no less important. Today, the Coast Guard upholds this mission:
- to protect the public
- to protect the environment
- to enforce US Maritime Laws
Day of Celebration – August 4
Founded August 4, 1890, each year we celebrate on that same date, the men and women of the United States Coast Guard who proudly and bravely serve and protect our country.
