Commandant’s Veterans Day message

Veterans Day was established as Armistice Day in 1919 to commemorate the Allied victory and honor the heroism of service members killed during World War I. Veterans Day is now a time to remember all those who have answered the call of duty to protect and preserve the promise of this great Nation. For over 223 years, the men and women of the United States Coast Guard have answered the call.


Honoring those who serve

A week from today, America will honor those who have worn the uniform in service to our country as we commemorate Veterans Day. Coast Guard units across the nation will hold events to honor living veterans as well as remember those who have crossed the bar. Whether it is visiting a local hospital or running a 5k to support wounded warrior organizations, we encourage each servicemember to find their own unique way to honor those who have sacrificed to protect each and every one of us.
