The Coast Guard is one of America’s five armed forces and traces its founding back to 1790, when the first Congress authorized the construction of 10 vessels to enforce tariff and trade laws, prevent smuggling, and protect the collection of federal revenue.

Today, the Coast Guard protects our nation against terrorism, executes search and rescue operations, and enforces maritime law.
