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.

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.
