Coast Guard Cutter in the Arabian Gulf

The United States Coast Guard protects our waterways and coastal regions seven days a week and twenty-four hours a day. On Labor Day, it seems appropriate to remember them, as they will not be on holiday - they will be actively protecting us.

They are also in the Arabian Gulf protecting US interests and interests of our allies there.

These brave men and women are taking an active role in the Great War on Terror.

With gratitude for all you do at home and abroad!
