Modeling the Coast Guard core values of honor, respect, and devotion to duty, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston commands all U.S. Coast Guard operations for the Houston/Galveston/Texas City area, including managing traffic through Galveston Bay. The Command Center is located in Houston, Texas.
The Houston-Galveston-Texas City area is home to the largest petrochemical port in the United States and requires a monumental effort to keep the incredible amount of traffic safe and running smoothly through Galveston Bay into the Gulf of Mexico. The USCG Sector Houston-Galveston is responsible for the safe operation of the ports in addition to vehicle inspections, homeland security, oil spill prevention, and managing the commercial fishing interests.
Minted from bronze, and finished with an antique patina, this medallion is dedicated to the former and current Coast Guard and civilian personnel who have proudly served this Sector Command in its important role to protect this nation’s freedom. It is an ideal gift or commemoration for anyone who has served the Command. The obverse features the emblem of Sector Houston-Galveston. The reverse displays the emblem of the U.S. Coast Guard.
