Founded in 1899, Coast Guard Yard serves as the Coast Guard's only shipbuilding and repair facility, and is essential to the Coast Guard's industrial base. Its annual revenue is roughly $100 million. Coast Guard Yard is renowned for its quality, work, and productivity, and is the recipient of nearly 35 awards, including the Society of American Military Engineers' Cowart Plaque for Excellence in Facilities Engineering and the Lucas Plaque for Naval Engineering.

Located in Baltimore, Maryland, Coast Guard Yard operates out of Curtis Bay in Anne Arundel County. Baltimore, the largest city in Maryland, has a long and rich history, spanning back to its founding in 1729. Once known as the 2nd largest point of entry for immigrants entering the United States, it also was one of the country's major centers of industry, until the decline of major industrialization. Since then, Baltimore has focused on becoming more service oriented, and is home to both John Hopkins University and John Hopkins Hospital. Baltimore is also known for having many famous residents over the years, including Edgar Allen Poe, Billie Holiday, and Babe Ruth.

Coast Guard Yard spans roughly 22 acres, includes numerous athletic and recreational facilities, including basketball courts, a tennis court, softball fields, a racquetball court, and a swimming pool. The base also offers a fishing/crabbing pier, a boat launch, and a center to rent out a wide array of sporting equipment. Veteran's services are located nearby in the Inner Harbor District of Baltimore, most notably the Military Order of the Purple Heart. Located there are also the VA Medical Center, Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs, and multiple independent veterans' organizations.
