Happy 225th birthday to the US Coast Guard. Semper Paratus - Always Prepared.
"We're always ready for the call, We place our trust in Thee.
Through surf and storm and howling gale, High shall our purpose be,
"Semper Paratus" is our guide, Our fame, our glory, too.
To fight to save or fight and die! Aye! Coast Guard, we are for you.
