US Coast Guard Memorial

Free
The U.S. Coast Guard Memorial which appears as a triangular slab of marble emblazoned with the Coast Guard Crest accompanied by a bronze eagle in Arlington National Cemetery

Dedicated in May of 1923, the marker memorializes the 150 sailors who lost their lives on the cutter ships Tampa and Seneca which sank within a week of each other during World War I. Today the memorial is for all Coast Guard service members. Adorned with a seagull which represents the tireless vigil of the guard and the words Semper Paratus meaning “Always Ready”, the motto of the Coast Guard, the memorial is a must see for all.
