Some fun facts about our great service

While not its official birthday, #onthisday in 1915, the modern U.S. Coast Guard was created with the Coast Guard Act, merging the U.S. Life Saving Service and the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service (established August 4, 1790, which is the official birthday of the Coast Guard) per 14 U.S.C. § 1 which states: "The Coast Guard as established January 28, 1915, shall be a military service and a branch of the armed forces of the United States at all times." #ThisDayInHistory #OTD #SemperParatus #AlwaysPrepared

THE BUOY YARD!!!
Aids to Navigation Team New York's grimy and important mission to keep the New York waterways safe for #maritimecommerce.

Beauty is all about perspective - and perhaps 17-foot tall, 10-ton buoys covered in barnacles, salt water erosion and all manner of ilk that you don't notice when you're watching those big commercial ships travel through the harbors in the port of New York and New Jersey and all up and down the Hudson River don't necessarily twinkle in your eyes , but the maritime commerce world smiles whenever they pop up because they are guiding their way to get you the goods and services you use every day!

ANT New York is one of the largest aids to navigation teams in the Coast Guard with 21 active duty personnel and two 49-foot Buoy Utility Stern Loading boats and two 26-foot Trailerable Aids to Navigation Boats .

The ANT works in the largest #MaritimeTransportationSystem on the Eastern Seaboard which yields nearly $6.6 billion of commerce per day ($2.4 trillion annually) maintaining nearly 1000 primary and secondary navigational aids throughout their nearly 1,600 square mile area of operations.

In addition to the ANT, Bayonne, NJ is home port to the largest black hull fleet with Coast Guard Cutters Katherine Walker, Penobscot Bay, Sturgeon Bay, Hawser, and Line conducting #searchandrescue, #AidstoNavigation, #PortandWaterwaysCoastalSecurity, Law #Enforcement, and Domestic #Icebreaking as their primary missions.

What happened when a shark crashed our swim call...

You can also catch ME1 Cintron, our shark watch who fired the shots at the shark, explaining what happened tomorrow morning on “Good Morning America”!

And, everyone is safe, including the shark. The shots turned it away from our shipmates so they had time to get out of the water. A few of its buddies later showed up and they swam off together.

The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Munro patrolled the maritime boundary line in the Bering Sea July 26, 2020, alongside the Russian Border Guard vessel Kamchatka.

#DYK The U.S. Coast Guard routinely works with other international law enforcement entities to protect and preserve the maritime ecosystem and valuable fish stocks from illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing?

From countering drug smugglers in the Eastern Pacific to operating in the harsh Bering Sea, to enforcing U.N. Sanctions in the Western Pacific, crews aboard our Coast Guard National Security Cutters, like the Munro, are truly enforcing our national security across the globe!
