The Day, in collaboration with the National Coast Guard Museum Association is proud to present “Service Above Self: A Pictorial History of The U.S. Coast Guard” — a photo journey through the U.S. Coast Guard’s 225-year history.

For more than two centuries, the Coast Guard has been a guardian of the American seas.

Its members have flown into perilous weather to rescue mariners in distress, fought in the nation’s wars, worked to preserve and protect marine life, and much more. 

This hardcover commemorative photo book, featuring a foreword written by Admiral R. J. Papp, Jr., USCG, (ret.), takes a look at the many missions of the U.S. Coast Guard and the men and women who have joined this service over the course of its 225-year-old history. 

Hundreds of images give a visual representation of the Coast Guard’s work, and each chapter includes information on the responsibilities of the service and some of the famous figures who have joined its ranks.

A portion of proceeds will go to support the National Coast Guard Museum Association, Inc., The Coast Guard Foundation, and the Coast Guard Academy Alumni Association.

I did not see the book but had it mailed directly to my father. It arrived earlier than expected and my father was raving about it! He said it was a great coffee table book and he was excited to get through it
