How do you celebrate a birthday U.S. Coast Guard style? With a cookout on the flight deck, corn hole, ping pong, volley ball, and cake. It was a beautifully sunny day, with Cape Lisburne in the distance, as the science group and crew of the Healy enjoyed the festivities. Coast Guard Day is observed on August 4th and commemorates the beginnings of the U.S. Coast Guard in 1790. The original "Revenue Service" was later merged with the "U.S. Life Saving Service" and the name "United States Coast Guard" was signed into law by President Wilson in 1915. Happy Birthday, U. S. Coast Guard!
