2. Overview
Air Force was still a part of the Army as the Army Air Corps, therefore there was no seal for them.
The seal for the Coast Guard shows that at the time it was still under the Department of the Treasury. In 1967 it was transferred to the newly formed Department of Transportation. In 2003 it was then transferred to the newly formed Department of Homeland Security.
