History Of The United States Coast Guard

In its third century of spectacular service, the United States Coast Guard stands unsung. Its singular reputation as the worldwide emblem of rescue at sea has overshadowed the unbelievable scope of its feats as America's fifth armed service. Once again in time of crisis, the nation calls upon this agile service to shift gears beyond its other vital duties, this time to deal with the terrorist threat. Our 2-hour special features its exploits from inception by Alexander Hamilton in 1790 to the present day. We witness the stepchild service battle for its very existence, enduing by becoming indispensable and irreplaceable. Through all of its incarnations--including fighting in every American war and protecting 16,000 miles of ocean, river, and lake shoreline--it's the story of men and women expending their courage and lives performing incredible nautical good deeds year in and year out.
