The United States Coast Guard traces its origins to 1790, but was not officially named until 1915. At last there is one definitive volume describing its history on The Great Lakes from inception to the present. The author, Thomas P. Ostrom, served in the USCGR from 1961-69, and had basic and advanced training at the USCG Base, Alameda, California. He served subsequently in the Port Security Reserve Unit in Duluth, Minnesota, and participated in monthly and active duty assignments each summer, earning petty officer rank.

Reviews - What do customers think about THE USCG ON THE GREAT LAKES?

Highly accessible and thoroughly engaging contribution to American military and nautical history shelves.  Apr 7, 2007
Written by history, anthropology, and geography teacher Thomas P. Ostrom, who served in the USCGR from 1961-69, The USCG on the Great Lakes: A History chronicles the existence and duties of the United States Coast Guard on the Great Lakes from its inception in the late 1700's to the present day. From life-saving duties to environmental protection, law enforcement, port security, and much more, the USCG's contributions to national defense throughout the centuries are efficiently summarized, with an extensive bibliography for further reference. A handful of black-and-white photographs and an index round out this highly accessible and thoroughly engaging contribution to American military and nautical history shelves.
An Example of a Good History Book  Jan 16, 2007
As with his first book on the U.S. Coastguard, Mr. Ostrom demonstrated again in this book his ability for thorough research, his good sense of historical ballance and perspective, and his easy-paced narrative. I enjoyed reading the book very much and have recommended it to all of my friends. Anyone who is interested in a good history book will do well picking up this book.
