    For 228 years, the Coast Guard has been tasked with protecting waterways, saving lives, and enforcing laws in the United States and abroad.
    A very “Happy Birthday” to the Coast Guard!


    Ah yes. "Continuously". I see what you did there. ;) (The U.S. Navy was disbanded after the Revolutionary War).

    "Well, Mr. Stello, in the Coast Guard they say you gotta go out. But they don't say you gotta come back ..."

    Maybe The Finest Hours wasn't entirely accurate (how many movies are?), but it succeeded in being pretty darned good.
