Largest County of Coast Guards

[Caption] DARE has not only more lighthouses than any other county on the coast, but has more Coast Guard stations (there being 19), than any other county in the world, because it has the longest coast line. The Coast Guard service gives employment to many men. The above picture shows a Coast Guard flaring his signal while on patrol.
