Establishment of US Coast Guard – 28 January 1915 The United States Coast Guard was created by Act of Congress on 28 January 1915, when the Life-Saving Service was combined with the Revenue-Cutter Service. From the beginning, the Coast Guard constituted part of the military forces of the United States. It operated (at that time) under the Treasury Department in time of peace and as part of the Navy in time of war or when the President shall so direct. Semper Paratus!
This cover photo is one I use often on Memorial Day weekend. It is of the cemetery at Collville Sur Mer, above Omaha Beach at Normandy. There are more than 9,000 American boys buried there. Every American should visit this piece of the United States (France gave the land to us after the War) once in their life. These young men died so that we can complain about our country and our lot in life in the most free of countries. I post this in honor of all of our service personnel. I would also say that the Coast Guard was well represented on D-Day. They were coxens on many of the Higgins Boats that brought the boys onto the beaches. Semper Paratus.
