About U.S. Coast Guard
Since Aug. 4, 1790, the United States Coast Guard has been America’s Maritime Guardian, charged with safety and security on and environmental stewardship of the nation’s waterways. Created by America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton when he was the fledgling nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury, the service is the only one of the Armed Forces to have domestic law enforcement and regulatory authority. Best known for its search and rescue missions, the Coast Guard was the first of the Armed Forces to respond to both 9/11 and the massive 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

The Coast Guard has served in all of the nation’s armed conflicts since the War of 1812. On the forefront of the global War on Terrorism, the Coast Guard is charged with maritime security of such icons as the Statue of Liberty and of such major events as the Super Bowl. The service is also charged with preventing and mitigating oil spills. America’s most diverse Armed Force easily lives up its motto of Semper Paratus, Always Ready.
