The "Coast Guard City" designation was established by Congress in 1998 to recognize cities where the United States Coast Guard are located. In order to qualify for that distinction, that city has to show support for Coast Guard personnel stationed there.
The particular Coast Guard City USA, shown here is in my home town of Newport on the Central Oregon Coast. Newport boasts the biggest fishing fleet in Oregon.
Fisherman go out in the Pacific Ocean in all weather conditions and times. They value the support they get, very whole heartily from the Coast Guard. Especially, when they should get into trouble at sea.
The job of the Coast Guard can be extremely dangerous in high sea rescues. This image has been converted to a digital painting!
