Coast Guard Birthday


When is the Coast Guard’s Birthday? The U.S. Coast Guard Birthday was created on August 4, 1790, when the first Congress asked Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton to assemble ten vessels. The organization’s motive was to enforce tariff laws and to stop smuggling. The day celebrates the military organization for its dedication and perseverance. For over two hundred years, the Coast Guard has played a significant role in national security, maintaining waterway safety. 

Why the United States Coast Guard Birthday Matters

The Guard is the smallest of the five Armed Services and protects the environment and economic interests of America. The Guard is a multi-mission, maritime military service that serves along the coast in international waters. The day reminds society to be aware of American history and how trade laws and prevention of smuggling emerged, protecting American citizens.  

In 1946, the organization expanded its responsibilities after Congress passed the Commerce Department's Bureau of Marine Inspection and Navigation to the Coast Guard. Although these establishments happened on separate dates, citizens can appreciate the work of our active-duty members on August 4th.

How to Show Appreciation for the Birthday of the Coast Guard 

To celebrate the coast guard’s birthday, you and a friend or a family member can show appreciation and patriotism. If you have a loved one or a neighbor who served the country, be sure to say thank you or ask them if they can share any memorable moments. Of course, posting on social media, a picture with a heartfelt caption, or a link to an organization where profits go to veterans is always supported. 

Other ways to show appreciation include visiting a Coast Guard museum, watching a military movie, or reading about America’s past. Plus, if you decide to post on social media, be sure to include #NationalCoastGuardDay or #USCoastGuardDay on any post to spread the word.
