Happy 230th Birthday U. S. Coast Guard August 4, 2020

Happy 230th Birthday to the United States Coast Guard (USCG). It started out as the Revenue Marine on August 4, 1790. It would later be known as the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service until it was merged with the U.S. Life-Saving Service on January 28, 1915 as the U.S. Coast Guard. You can visit the Coast Guard‘s website at https://www.uscg.mil/.

A big thank you to GP Cox for the reminder on this post – https://pacificparatrooper.wordpress.com/2020/08/03/sports-in-the-wwii-military/.

To my nephew who retired from the Coast Guard, an uncle who also retired from the Coast Guard and passed away back in 2008, and to those currently serving in the Coast Guard, your dedication is appreciated.

    • You are welcome. I didn’t know my uncle was in the Coast Guard just before World War II until I started researching him as part of my genealogy. I only met him once, but he never talked about his service. I was surprised that one of my first cousins was born in Hawaii as he was stationed ther shortly after the war as I figured that was going to be the one state I would have trouble connecting to my family.
