Military Appreciation Month occurs in May each year, and we want to take this time to honor the United States Coast Guard. Thank you for your service and all that you do to keep us safe.
The Coast Guard is a U.S. federal agency responsible for the maritime safety, security, and environmental stewardship in U.S. waterways and ports. The Coast Guard defends and protects more than 100,000 miles along U.S. coastlines as well as inland waterways. U.S. Coast Guards also provide humanitarian aid to people in distress. This can include those who have experienced human-made and natural disasters both onshore and off.
