Coast Guard Birthday
On Aug. 4, 1790, the U.S. Coast Guard was created by Congress. Happy Birthday and Semper Paratus!
On Aug. 4, 1790, the U.S. Coast Guard was created by Congress, which authorized Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton to build a small fleet of 10 cutters to protect the coast. As the Coast Guard marks its birthday and continues to serve a critical role under the Department of Homeland Security, we at The Patriot Post offer our thanks for a job well done. Happy Birthday and Semper Paratus!
Please visit the Patriot Post Shop for a great selection of items bearing the Coast Guard’s insignia.
