USCG Reserve Anniversary

USCG boat
72 Years of Service to America

Today we recognize the United States Coast Guard Reserve, on the occasion of its 72nd anniversary, for its contributions to the safety of the industry we love so dearly, cruising.

The Coast Guard Reserve was established Feb. 19, 1941

 Today, the Coast Guard Reserve consists of nearly 8,000 dedicated men and women who support the Coast Guard roles of maritime homeland security, national defense – domestic and expeditionary – and response to natural and man-made domestic disasters. Reservists are always ready to mobilize with critical competencies in boat operations, contingency planning and response, expeditionary warfare, marine safety, port security, maritime law enforcement and mission support.

Thank you for your service to our Nation - keeping our waterways safe and responding to national disasters like  Hurricane Sandy.
