Semper Paratus (Always Ready)

By Gretchen S. Curtis, LHS Director of Operations

The Lakeside Heritage Society (LHS) presents Creation of the U.S. Coast Guard and History of the Marblehead Life-Saving Station on Sunday, July 5, at 2 p.m. in Chautauqua Hall at Fountain Inn.  The U.S. Coast Guard, the oldest continuous seagoing service in the United States, dates back to 1790. However, did you know the U.S. Coast Guard is actually a conglomerate of many services? Its first big change happened 100 years ago in 1915.  Today the U.S. Coast Guard is one of the five armed forces of the U.S. and the only military organization within the Department of Homeland Security.
