Happy U.S. Coast Guard Day!  Founded by Alexander Hamilton as the “Revenue Marine” in 1790, the Coast Guard is the oldest continuously going sea service in the United States, whose original purpose was as the collector of customs duties in the nation's seaports.  The modern Coast Guard was formed by a merger of the Revenue Cutter Service and the U.S. Life-Saving Service in 1915, under the U.S. Department of the Treasury. As one of the country's five armed services, the Coast Guard has approximately 42,000 men and women on active duty, 7,900 reservists, 32,000 auxiliarists, and 8,700 full-time civilian employees. In terms of size, the U.S. Coast Guard by itself is the world's 12th largest naval force.  To celebrate the Coast Guard, we’ve got some apps to recommend to Coasties.
