September 27, 2019 - U.S. Coast Guard Training Center Cape May holds a memorial ceremony for Medal of Honor Recipient Petty Officer 1st Class Douglas Munro near his statue on the parade field on base. It was the 77th anniversary of Munro’s extraordinarily heroic actions at Guadalcanal during World War II.
U.S. Coast Guard men and women carry out a wide variety of diverse missions every day as we protect people on the sea, protect the nation against threats from the sea and protect the sea itself. We focus on present-day operations and readiness for tomorrow, but certain days compel us and all Americans to reflect back upon our history and heritage.
