219 years ago, this elite seagoing service was established and has long withstood the sands of time. Surely, 219 is not ancient but one thing can be said for sure, there is still a need in our world today for the United States Coast Guard that would confirm the 1790 congressional decision to found an entity to protect us and enforce maritime rules and regulations. Of course, the way the USCG does things may have been modified overtime.
Happy Coast Guard day to you and your family-at-large. My husband and I will be enjoying a nice lunch together today in honor of Alexander Hamilton, well, okay, maybe it's mostly thanks to early liberty.
