White House: Presidential Message on the U.S. Coast Guard’s 230th Birthday

TVIBs auditors, surveyors, and staff join the President and First Lady in wishing the U.S. Coast Guard a happy 230th birthday. Thank you for all that you do for our industry and the nation.

In the 230 years that have passed since the creation of the Coast Guard, our Nation has grown stronger because of the Coast Guard’s dedication to its motto Semper Paratus—“Always Ready.”  Each day, the more than 40,000 active duty and civilian and more than 7,000 reserve men and women of the Coast Guard help secure and advance our national preparedness, response, and economic prosperity.  These courageous individuals defend our borders, rescue mariners in distress, facilitate the passage of trillions of dollars of commerce safely into and out of our ports, and combat drug smugglers and human traffickers, among a host of other tasks essential to the security of the American people.

President, Donald J. Trump
