U.S. Coast Guard Day: Coast Guard Day is celebrated on August 4th every year to commemorate the founding of the United States Coast Guard as the Revenue Marine on 4 August, 1790. It is primarily an internal activity for active duty Coast Guard personnel, civilian members, reservists, retirees, auxiliarists, and dependents, but it does have a significant share of interest outside the institution. The mission of the U.S. Coast Guard is to ensure the safety, security and stewardship of the Nation’s waters. It is the lead Federal agency for law enforcement, incident response, homeland security and disaster management in the maritime environment. This year marks 224 years of service by the U.S. Coast Guard.
