The United States Coast Guard celebrated its 228th birthday on August 4. The Coast Guard is one of the armed forces in America, which was founded on August 4, 1790. On this day, Congress authorized the construction of 10 vessels, which were designed to enforce tariffs, prevent theft, and protect federal revenue. It was the job of the Coast Guard (which didn’t actually receive this name until 1915) to handle these tasks. Since 1790, the Coast Guard gained additional duties, such as aiding mariners in destress and tending to humanitarian needs.
Of the five American armed forces, the Coast Guard is the smallest. The multi-mission and maritime military service protects the public, the environment, economic interests, and waterways along our coast and internationally, as well as any maritime area that requires national security.
This past August 4, we celebrated the birthday of the Coast Guard and continue to honor those who serve our country through this branch of the United States military. At Operation Rubix>, we understand that serving as a member of the Coast Guard is not easy. Coast Guard members and veterans encounter difficult situations, which can lead to PTSD.
Even though the Coast Guard is not a combat military group, these individuals still face stress, tragedy, and death. For veterans who served in the Coast Guard and are experiencing symptoms of PTSD or other mental health problems, Operation Rubix can help.
