U.S. #936 commemorates the role of the U.S. Coast Guard in World War II. The stamp pictures two coast guard landing crafts with a supply ship in the background.
 
During World War II, the U.S. Coast Guard served as a specialized branch of the U.S. Navy. It was responsible for stowing dangerous cargo, protecting ships and ports, and establishing beach-landing methods.
 
World War II
World War II killed more people, destroyed more property, disrupted more lives, and probably had more far-reaching consequences than any other war in history. It hastened the fall of Western Europe as the center of world power, and led to the rise of the Soviet Union. The development of the atomic bomb during the war opened the nuclear age.
 
World War II began when Germany invaded Poland in 1939 and ended when Germany, and later Japan, surrendered in 1945. Military deaths as a result of World War II numbered about 17 million. Also, millions of civilians died because of starvation, bombing raids, massacres, epidemics, and other war-related causes. Battles were fought all over the world: Southeast Asian jungles, North African deserts, Pacific islands, Soviet battlefields, Atlantic beaches, and European streets. The war reshaped the map of Europe and changed the American way of life.
