George Washington created the Purple Heart in 1782, making it the oldest medal given to members of the military. Over 1.8 million service members have received a Purple Heart in the Medal’s 238 years of existence.
We at Massif would like to wish the US Coast Guard a happy 230th Birthday. We are thankful that Alexander Hamilton talked America’s first Congress into funding a fleet of ten ships to enforce tariffs and protect trade along the eastern coastline on August 4th, 1890.
