U.S. Coast Guard Historian's Office should be mentioned not only as a extnal link... -- Scriberius 21:20, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

This article is missing the Coast Guards role in World War I. I will be working on this in the next few months to see if I can remedy this situation. Cuprum17 (talk) 00:08, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

I noticed that this article always uses "Revenue Cutter Service" which was not the official name until 1894. You would never know that it was the "Revenue Marine". The wiki article for "Revenue Cutter Service" is careful to keep this straight, but not this article or the main Coast Guard article. Why is this? Jmosman (talk) 19:09, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Under the "1980s" heading, I think a mention of the Libyan SCUD missile attack on LORAN Station Lampedusa needs to be mentioned. This was the only direct attack on US military personnel by the Libyan government after the US military strike there in 1986. It was a pretty big deal, not only that it was a direct attack on the US Coast Guard, but also in the way it was handled and how the Italians were left out in the proverbial "rain". —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:05, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
