Coast Guard Day

NATIONAL COAST GUARD DAY

National Coast Guard Day celebrated annually on August 4. This is a day set aside to celebrate and honor the courageous work of the Coast Guard.

The United States Coast Guard is a branch of the US Armed Forces. It is a maritime, military and multi-missioned service. It operates under the Department of Homeland Security during peacetime, but can be transferred to the US Navy by the President of the United States any time deemed necessary, or by Congress during war times.

When Hurricane Katrina struck the Atlantic coast of America, the US Coast Guard saved over 33,500 lives. An estimated 24,000 of these were rescued from peril in severely dangerous conditions.
