Throughout a Guardsman's career in the US Coast Guards, there are many milestones to celebrate. It starts with an enlisted person’s graduation from boot camp or an officer’s commissioning and followed by promotions & duty station transfers. Retirement is the last Coast Guard milestone for celebration!

After years of tours and assignments, the retiring Coast Guardsman is ready to make the final port call and drop his anchor at home. It is an emotional moment not only for the retiree himself but also for colleagues, friends and family members.

This crystal sailboat makes a great symbolic gift to honor this last milestone. Shower the retiring Coast Guardsman with praise for years of faithful and honorable service to his country, wish them smooth sailing to retirement with this unique USCG retirement gift.

This award was not a retirement gift, but a yachting race award. It was perfect! There was room to put all the pertinent information on the race. The blue color made it very classy with the American flag in the background. Thanks to their staff, who let me make multiple changes before finalizing the product. It was exactly what I wanted! Can’t wait to see see the recipient’s response.
