Adm. Bob Papp was present as City of New London, Conn., and the National Coast Guard Museum Association unveiled the plans and location of the museum.

As the oldest U.S. maritime service, and the only U.S. military service without a national museum, the National Coast Guard Museum will afford the public an opportunity to learn about the rich and noteworthy achievements of the men and women who forged the service’s history of the past 223 years.

Mr. James Coleman, Jr., chairman of the National Coast Guard Museum Association Board, unveiled the plans. “All I can say after so many years is Semper Paratus. We are ready and eager to get this job done.”

The Coast Guard has supported efforts to build a National Coast Guard Museum since the 1990s. The New London site designation and proposed design represent a critical first step towards making the museum a reality. In a recent letter expressing gratitude to the National Coast Guard Museum Association for their efforts, the Commandant stated the museum project is,  “A tribute to those in the Long Blue Line who sacrificed, during war and peace, since the founding of our Republic to protect and defend the United States of America.”
