Default Commissioned CG officers, June 1920

So then, June 1920 held a major shake up for the commissioned CG officers. Take a stab at it..

In 1790, when the 'system of cutters' was established, the officers of the cutters were designated as Master and Mates. Their ration was based on that of the U.S. Army. Congress established the U.S. Army in 1789. The only military department of the government, it served as a base line for the ration and later pay and ranking of officers of the new civil branch service of the Treasury Department.

I believe it was right up to the May 18, 1920 pay act that their pay was based on Army officer pay. Warrant officers and enlisted men, in the fall of 1917 were paired up to US Navy ratings and paid on the Navy scale..

By 1790 the Congress was busy doing all sorts of congressional business.

In April 1790 the second session of the first congress was very busy. An Act regulating the military establishment of the U.S. was passed. Section 5 of the Act concerned to pay of officers and enlisted men of the Army.. It specified a Captain would receive $30 a month and 3 rations; a Lieutenant $ 22 a month and 2 rations; an Ensign $ 18 a month and 2 rations..

In August of 1790 an Act was passed concerning the Revenue and Customs. In that Act section 62 authorized the building of the revenue cutters and section 63 specified the manning and pay for the crews. A Master (Captain) would receive $30 a month and 3 Army rations, a 1st Mate $20 a month and 2 rations, a 2nd Mate $16 a month and 2 rations, and a 3rd Mate $ 14 a month and 2 rations. From the start of the revenue marine, the officers pay was connected to the U.S. Army..

Have a thoughtful Memorial Day. We are at 100 years since we got into World War 1, 75 years since we were deep into World War 2, and 50 years for the Viet Nam War.

For the Coast Guard, there was approximately 8000+ deployed in Coast Guard activities in the War. Many of those veterans would be closing in on 70 years+ and will be fading from view soon. Better than a third of my shipmates have crossed the bar.

By 1799, an Act of Congress concerned the Revenue Marine and its co-operation with the Navy during the quasi war with France. The officers were referred to as Captain and First, Second, and Third Lieutenants. Certainly more military sounding than the shipping terms Master and Mates.

For the enlisted seaman, the term non - commissioned officers came into usage. The Boatswain,Gunner and Carpenter. Petty officers introduced into the Revenue Marine...

In early June, after the Pay Act of May 1920, another regulation changed the titles of the officers of the Coast Guard to those used by the US Navy. The grades of Ensign, Lt.jg, Lt, LCdr, Cdr and Capt. became the new titles fo the officers.
