Happy Birthday to the U.S. Coast Guard!!
We are happy to share that we are a proud sponsor of the 2016 U.S. Coast Guard Day celebration tomorrow at the U.S. Coast Guard Service Yard - Baltimore.
The event is not open to the general public. You must have base access or be a civilian that works in the service yard.
Coast Guard Day is to honor the establishment in 1790 of the Revenue Cutter Service, forebear of today's Coast Guard, by the Treasury Department. On that date, Congress, guided by Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton, authorized the building of a fleet of ten cutters, whose responsibility would be enforcement of the first tariff laws enacted by Congress under the Constitution.
