More than three million visitors arrive at Arlington National Cemetery’s hallowed grounds each year to pay their respects to American patriots. Scattered throughout the cemetery’s rolling hills, guests can also visit dozens of memorials. Sitting proudly atop a hill – sandwiched between sections 4 and 8 – is one of these memorials. It’s the Coast Guard Memorial.
