In time of war or  when  the  President  so  directs,  it  becomes  a service in the Navy but continues to perform its normal  specialized  duties. The  Coast  Guard  is  the  nation’s  oldest continuous seagoing service. Established in 1790 as   the   United   States   Revenue   Marine   (later renamed the Revenue Cutter Service), the service was an arm of the Treasury Department, under then  Secretary  Alexander  Hamilton. The  Revenue  Marine  was  primarily  a  law enforcement   agency.   Its   responsibility   was   to collect custom duties from ships entering United States  waters. Although the original role of the service was law enforcement, revenue cutters and crews took part in almost every conflict involving the United States. These involvements established the military readiness  of  the  service. 11-9
