2015 marks the 225th anniversary of the United States Coast Guard. On Aug. 4, 1790, the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service, one of five federal services that would eventually make up the Coast Guard, was established under the control of the Treasury Department. Over the next century, four more distinct and separate federal services would be amalgamated to become the U.S. Coast Guard. While the service’s missions have grown and evolved over the 225 years of its history, today the Coast Guard remains concentrated on ensuring the safety, security, and prosperity of the nation and its citizens. This edition of Coast Guard Outlook commemorates the anniversary and history of the sea service while describing its present-day programs, missions, and operations as well as its future.
