  • U.S. Coast Guard Barque Eagle U.S. Coast Guard Barque Eagle
    The 295-foot Barque Eagle is the flagship of the U.S. Coast Guard. She serves as a training vessel for cadets at the Coast Guard Academy and candidates from the Officer Candidate School. The Eagle is the only active-duty sailing vessel in America's military, and one of only two commissioned sailing vessels, along with the USS Constitution. EAGLE, the largest Tall Ship flying the Stars and Stripes and the only square-rigger in U.S. government service, is the seventh U.S. Coast Guard cutter to bear the name in a proud line dating back to 1792. Built at the Blohm + Voss Shipyard in Hamburg, Germany in 1936, and commissioned as Horst Wessel, Eagle is one of three sail-training ships operated by the pre-World War II German navy. At the close of the war, the ship was taken as a war reparation by the U.S., re-commissioned as the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Eagle and sailed to New London, Connecticut, which has been its homeport ever since. Eagle has offered generations of Coast Guard Academy cadets, and more recently officer candidates, an unparalleled leadership experience at sea.

  • U.S. Coast Guard History U.S. Coast Guard History
    Welcome to the website of the U. S. Coast Guard Historian's Office. We are proud to serve as the gateway to the study of our service's illustrious past. The Historian's Office collects, preserves, promotes and commemorates the Coast Guard's history and heritage in all forms, including the history and heritage of each of the five predecessor agencies that make up today's Coast Guard: the Revenue Cutter Service, the Life-Saving Service, the Lighthouse Service, the Bureau of Navigation and the Steamboat Inspection Service.

  • U.S. Coast Guard Museum U.S. Coast Guard Museum
    Building a National Museum to Honor, Engage, Educate and Inspire Generations. WHEN THE MOST IS EXPECTED, the United States Coast Guard has delivered the most for us. They are always ready – Semper Paratus. Now is the time for us to do the Most for them with a National Coast Guard Museum. Since its inception in 1790, the USCG has tirelessly answered the call to duty, saving lives, enforcing maritime law, combating terrorism, facilitating commerce and protecting the environment. The vital responsibilities of the USCG are carried out by highly trained men and women who perform these missions with honor, respect, and devotion to duty. Yet, the Coast Guard is the only branch of the armed services without a national museum to celebrate its role in the life of our Nation and to honor the men and women who serve. The public is generally unaware of the scale and scope of the Coast Guard’s missions. We have come to expect the MOST from the Coast Guard, but there is no place for the USCG to share with the public its history, to demonstrate its critical role in protecting us, and to highlight its relevance to the greatest issues facing our Nation. That is until now; it is the right time to build the National Coast Guard Museum in honor of those who serve. Join us in doing the Most for them.
