    Default Happy 228th Birthday Coast Guard



    Each August 4 the U.S. Coast Guard celebrates its birthday. Founded August 4th, 1790, it received its present name in 1915 when the Revenue Cutter Service merged with the U.S. Life-Saving Service to form a single maritime service dedicated to the safety of life at sea and enforcing the nation's maritime laws.

    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?
