Happy birthday Coast Guard

“S.O.S.”

raging waves pound the shore
the storm outside promises more
react to call without thinking
somewhere out there a boat is sinking
no matter the weather will always try
but sometimes too late people will die
service to country in many waters
signed up they are our sons and daughters
often overlooked though job is hard
patrol our shores they are the Coast Guard

On this day in 1790 the U.S. Coast Guard was founded.
