Guardian SEALs

2 comments

Today, two Guardians made history by being the first Coast Guardsmen to graduate from Basic Underwater Demolition/SEALs, sometimes better known as BUD/S. Although this is just one major milestone in their extensive training, it is an impressive one – not only for the members but also for the Coast Guard.

Read more about the Guardian SEALs and plans for next year’s class over at the Commandant’s blog.

  1. I have read about this program and it makes me ask about a different part of CG history. I am a former member of the USCGA Class of ’81 but left and ended up doing 20 years in the Navy’s Civil Engineer Corps and Seabees. I thought there were some informal CG construction units in the past. Do you have any info on that?

    Thanks, Jim

  2. Hi Jim and thanks for your comment. According to our historian’s office, there were Coast Guard construction units that built LORAN stations throughout the Pacific many years ago.

    For more information about those units and the LORAN system, check out our history page –
