Senior Chief Ross Comstock: The History of the Coast Guard in New England

February 7 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

$10

Today’s Coast Guard, as we know it, was derived from several services that were combined in 1915. Two of these services were the Lifesaving Service and the Lighthouse Service, which had their beginnings right here in New England. Much of the Coast Guard’s history comes from Massachusetts alone. Please join us as BMCS Ross Comstock, commander of the Chatham Coast Guard Station, discusses this fascinating and little known history of one of the most historically relevant military branches in Massachusetts.
