United States Coast Guard
“Semper Paratus” (Always Ready)
On Aug. 4, 1790, the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service, one of five federal services that would eventually make up the Coast Guard, was established under the control of the Treasury Department. Over the next century, four more distinct and separate federal services would be joined together to become the U.S. Coast Guard. While the service’s missions have grown and evolved over the 225 years of its history, today the Coast Guard remains concentrated on ensuring the safety, security, and prosperity of the nation and its citizens.
