Coast Guard Day message from President Obama
Posted by Christopher Lagan, Saturday, August 4, 2012
August 4th is a special day of the year for Coast Guard men and women and those who support them. Known as Coast Guard Day, it is a time of celebration and reflection on service and sacrifice to the Nation. For the past several years, the Coast Guard has shared it’s birthday with the Commander in Chief and President Barack Obama has taken some time from his own celebration to recognize our Service and send greetings to those who celebrate the anniversary of the Nation’s oldest continuous naval service.
We wish President Obama a happy 51st birthday and share with you his letter to the Coast Guard as we celebrate our 222nd birthday.
