Due to circumstances beyond my control I am unable to further maintain or update
this site. Fred Siegel from Fred's Place has graciously offered to migrate and archive it for future viewing. I am very
grateful for his hard work and time he has spent on doing this. Click on
To those that have submitted photos and
info that has not yet been incorporated into the site, I appologize and sincerely appreciate the time you spent sending it.
Thank you all.
Thank you for visiting coastguardpics.com. As a retired Coast Guardsman with over 20 years service I have found it difficult
to find or research older Coast Guard specific units and decided to create this site for all to enjoy. I originally started
with just a 100 or so of my personal photos and it has now grown to over 1300 images...thanks to viewers like you who have
volunteered to share what they have.
If you would like to contribute an image, please send them to me via email at a high resolution...preferably about 300dpi.
Please include info about the photo such as the date taken, unit name, photographer (if known) etc. I will not use copyrighted
info unless released by the owner.
Thanks to all that have already contributed
photographs. We now have several thousand images online.
What you will see on this site are some photographs of older shipping disasters, some rare photos of U.S.Revenue Cutters,
never before published photos of the USRC BEAR and older U.S.Coast Guard Cutters and aircraft. What you WON'T see are annoying
pop-ups, fancy flash presentations or glitsy animations. Check back often as this site will continually be updated.
I hope you enjoy this site and find it easy to navigate around. I welcome your comments and/or suggestions and ALL mail
will be answered. Please take a moment to sign the guestbook on the "contact us" page.
