Today, the United states Coast Guard marks it’s 222nd Birthday and on August 4 1790, was the birth of the United States Coast Guard. As one of the oldest Seagoing service in the United States, it can trace it’s heritage back to Alexander Hamilton, who is the father of the United States Coast Guard. Today, shipmates from Active Duty, Reserve, Auxiliary and Civilians are celebrating the birthday of the United States Coast Guard.

As an Auxiliarist with the United States Coast Guard, I am wishing them a Happy Birthday and Hope for the best for the United States Coast Guard and it’s future. Today, let’s give a toast to all my shipmates who are on watch around the world and around the country.
