Happy anniversary to our friends at USCG. You are looking mighty fine for 225 years old. #CG225th #SemperParatus @USCG. The US Coast Guard is one of our nation's five military services. USCG exists to defend and preserve US.

Their members protect the personal safety and security of our people; the marine transportation system and infrastructure; our natural and economic resources; and the territorial integrity of our nation–from both internal and external threats, natural and man-made.

USCG protects all these interests in US ports and inland waterways, along the coasts, on international waters.

A military, multi-mission, maritime force offering a unique blend of military, law enforcement, humanitarian, regulatory, and diplomatic capabilities. These capabilities underpin three broad roles: maritime safety, maritime security, and maritime stewardship.

To commemorate this anniversary, CITY IMAGES invites all our readers to revisit
