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.
