In this fact-filled and reflective volume, a veteran Coastguardsman tells the story of his own armed service smallest among those of the United States, yet surely one of the most valiant. Captain Walter C. Capron, in detailing the Coast Guard's story from its beginnings in the early days of the Republic to the present day, stresses that its duties and missions (except in wartime when it operates under the U.S. Navy) are basically humanitarian. Saving lives, protecting U.S. property, and enforcing basic quarantine and other laws is the Coast Guard's everyday business.
