Coast Guard Memorial

In honor of the U.S. Coast Guard lives lost during World War I, this Coast Guard Memorial was erected and dedicated in Arlington National Cemetery. While it is not one of the more impressive monuments in the cemetery, its use of a bronze seagull is fitting and symbolic of the Coast Guard's tireless watch over and protection of America's maritime territory. Semper Paratus (Always Ready).
