12 Feb Celebrate The Coast Guard Birthday!
Today the Coast Guard celebrates 228 years as the nation’s premier maritime law enforcement community!
The U.S. Coast Guard is one of the oldest organizations of the federal government, and although initially created to uphold maritime laws and collect tariffs, it now has the role of ensuring maritime safety, security and stewardship.
With jurisdiction in both domestic and international waters, the Coast Guard is often among the quickest to respond to national emergencies. The nearly 90,000 members of today’s Coast Guard continue the community’s mission to enforce maritime security, protect the environment, and defend the homeland.
Over these 228 years, the Coast Guard has served in every one of our nation’s conflicts and is the only one of the five service branches of the United States military within the Department of Homeland Security.
Zeiders honors the legacy of the nation’s oldest continuous seagoing service and the courage of each U.S. Coast Guard member, past or present, who has taken the oath to protect the country.
We send a special birthday message to all our employees who have an affiliation with the Coast Guard. Zeiders is proud of our employees’ dedication to living every day “Semper Paratus” (Always Ready) and committed to our shared core values of Honor, Respect, and Devotion to Duty.
Happy Birthday Coast Guard!
