Each year, Aug. 4 marks the U.S. Coast Guard's birthday. The military branch was first established in 1790 and has been recruiting members to serve our country ever since.
The Coast Guard is one of the six Armed Forces of the United States. The other branches are the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Space Force.
Here is everything you need to know about the Coast Guard in honor of its 233 years of service.
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY, AUGUST 4, 1790, COAST GUARD IS ESTABLISHED BY ALEXANDER HAMILTON
The Coast Guard's birthday is celebrated on Aug. 4 each year. This year will mark the 233rd birthday for the military branch. The Coast Guard's many years of service makes it one of the oldest organizations of the federal government.
The Coast Guard is older than the Navy. The Coast Guard was established in 1790 by Alexander Hamilton. The Navy was created by Congress in April 1798.
The motto of the Coast Guard is "Semper Paratus" which means "always ready." The Coast Guard is always prepared and works every day of the year.
PATRIOTIC ORGANIZATION ENCOURAGES YOUNG AMERICANS TO ENLIST IN THE MILITARY
The Coast Guard is one of America's six armed forces and is the only military branch that is a part of the Department of Homeland Security.
The Coast Guard has many humanitarian initiatives and does a lot of the work on and around the sea.
One of the Coast Guard's duties is to conduct search and rescue response. A latest example of this is when the Titan submersible went missing in the ocean on its way to the Titanic wreckage site.
The Coast Guard also enforces U.S. and international laws regarding the environment, assists in the reduction of marine pollution incidents, enforces environmental laws in place protecting both commercial and endangered species, enforces federal customs laws and patrols America's coasts, among other things.
OUR MILITARY RECRUITMENT CRISIS ROBS TODAY'S YOUNG ADULTS OF THESE LIFE CHANGING OPPORTUNITIES
In order to enlist in the U.S. Coast Guard, an individual must go through basic training, which includes academic and physical components.
The Coast Guard Training Center is in Cape May, New Jersey, and is home to an eight-week training program.
There are academic classes as well as hands-on training, which includes firearms, seamanship, firefighting, damage control and first aid.
Upon the completion of basic training, an individual's first assignment will be given about a week later as an unspecialized seaman or fireman.
AIR FORCE SHOWCASES HOW ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE WILL HELP MILITARY DOMINATE AIRSPACE
The Coast Guard is considered to be military. Sometimes there is confusion because they are not part of the U.S. Department of Defense. Instead, they are part of the Department of Homeland Security. That being said, the Coast Guard is still a part of the United States armed forces.
The length of time that one serves differs, but on average, people typically serve eight years in the Coast Guard.
If you are interested in joining the Coast Guard, the first step of the process is to find a recruiter. You can find a recruiter near you by going on the Coast Guard's website.
The next step is to schedule an interview with a recruiter. During this interview, you will be able to discuss your goals and the recruiter will make sure that you meet all the basic requirements to join.

Once you get past the interview stage, you will have to take two tests. One of these is a standardized test and the other is a physical exam. The standardized test is the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, or ASVAB. This test is used for all branches of the military. You will also need to complete a background check before joining.
In an effort to create and standardise an open api (application programming interface), multi-domain simulation framework across different industries, Accellera Systems Initiative, has announced a Federated Simulation Standard proposed working group. Its first meeting to “gather input and discuss expectations” will be held in Toulouse, France on 25 and 26 September. Different industries, for example avionics, space, semiconductor, automotive and ...
This month, Russia’s Outline Festival returned for the first time since being cancelled in 2016 by local authorities, who claimed the festival failed to meet permit requirements, which the organisers disputed. Reports of potential rioting following the 2016 cancellation were met with military personnel spotted outside the scheduled MoZAL plant venue.
As Resident Advisor reports, the return of the experimental-leaning festival, organised by the team behind Moscow club Mutabor, this year across July 6 to 9 just outside the Russian capital proved similarly controversial when a tent with military recruiting posters was seen at the entrance of the festival’s parking lot on the first day.
After an image of the tent was posted on Twitter, criticism was directed at the festival and artists playing at it by dance music journalists, fans and artists, including Russian techno producer Pavel Milyakov AKA Buttechno, who wrote: "To all the local and intl artists who perform there: you are officially used to attract people to go to war. After they finish dancing to ur music they will go and kill Ukrainian civilians. This blood is on your hands".
The line-up included international artists such as Atom™, Le Syndicat Electronique and Margaret Dygas as well as local acts like Tim Aminov, Sofia Rodina and Denis Kaznacheev.
Journalist Arielle Lana LeJarde has investigated the the image for Resident Advisor, confirming the validity of the recruitment tent and its location in proximity to Outline festival on its opening day, and speaking to Russian festivalgoers, one artist, and the Ukrainian journalist who posted the viral recruitment tent photo on Twitter, about the controversy.
The Russian festivalgoer who took the photo said to RA: "I don't know why the tent caused so much discussion. We've been under surveillance by the police and the government since the beginning of the war. It's become very dangerous to live here. In general, there are a lot of these tents in Moscow now, so no one even paid attention to it. I pay attention to these tents and billboards with conscripts. It's scary. People live in constant fear about the war."

Pavel Milyakov also spoke to RA, criticising artists who played Outline. He said: "All artists who perform there are normalising life under this regime. At the same time, they're letting themselves be used for accumulating tax income that goes to the military budget, which wages Russian invasion in Ukraine. I see total lack of awareness, empathy and responsibility. It doesn't go along with the values that true underground music communities should stand for. I see neither community nor values there. Only greed, blind ignorance and irresponsibility."
Ukrainian activist and journalist Maya Baklanova supports a boycott of Russian cultural events while the country is waging war on Ukraine. She said to RA: "I understand [Russian residents] want to forget about everything for one night. But for me, electronic music parties and festivals can't just be about hedonism or escapism when your country started a cruel war in the middle of Europe and you know people your age are dying while fighting your government. I'm not—and nor is anyone else in Ukraine—against people dancing. We just urge people to not just dance, but to make some changes."
No artists who played the festival returned a request for comment.
According to RA, Outline was further criticised after an apparent link was discovered between Lenta.Ru, a popular pro-Kremlin and pro-war news publication, one of the festival’s key partners, and for other propaganda materials and symbols being spotted around the festival.
Plans for Outline 2024 are reportedly underway.

BEIJING -- A new edition of a study outline on Xi Jinping's thinking on strengthening the military has been published.
The Political Work Department of the Central Military Commission (CMC) organized the compilation work of the new edition based on the original version of the study outline published in 2019.
This edition of the study outline expounds on the significance, scientific system, essence and practical requirements of the thinking. It fully demonstrates the thinking's latest development and will serve as fundamental material for its study, according to an official statement.
The CMC recently issued a circular calling for careful study and utilization of the new edition of the study outline.
Canada's Hyperstealth Biotechnology already manufactures camouflage uniforms for militaries across the globe.
But now, the company has patented a new "Quantum Stealth" material that disguises a military's soldiers — or even its tanks, aircraft, and ships — by making anything behind it seem invisible.
Earlier in October, Hyperstealth filed a patent for the material, which doesn't require a power source and is both paper-thin and inexpensive — all traits that could make it appealing for use on the battlefield.
According to a press release, it works by bending the light around a target to make it seemingly disappear. This light can be in the visible spectrum, or it can be ultraviolet, infrared, or shortwave infrared light, making the material what Hyperstealth calls a "broadband invisibility cloak."
Alongside the news of the patent application, Hyperstealth released more than 100-minutes worth of footage describing and demonstrating the material — and if the press release doesn't make it clear that the military is the company's target customer, the video footage sure does.
In one segment, Hyperstealth shows how it can hide a scaled-down version of a tank by placing a sheet of the material above it. In another, it renders a small jet invisible by placing it behind the "Quantum Stealth" material.
Now that Hyperstealth has reached the patent application stage with the material, it might not be long before it's fielding orders from militaries interested in keeping their assets under wraps.
