Help build the Coast Guard Museum

The Issue
Currently, the Coast Guard is the only military service without a national museum through which to share its rich history. This bill will help raise funds for the museum at no cost to the taxpayer.

A Solution
The Navy League is strongly urging members of the House of Representatives to cosponsor H.R. 2317, The United States Coast Guard Commemorative Coin Act.  This Act directs the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue coins emblematic of the "Semper Paratus" ethos of the Coast Guard, to help raise funds for the congressionally-authorized National Coast Guard Museum currently in development.This legislation has strong bipartisan support, but more cosponsorship is needed to help ensure the legislation is brought to the floor in the 115th Congress.

Not only will these coins recognize the bravery and dedication of the Coast Guard, but proceeds from the sale of the coins will be directed toward construction of the National Coast Guard Museum near the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, enabling Americans and people from around the world to learn about the valuable service and incredible history of the Coast Guard.  

Why you should take action
Many Navy League members and friends have already expressed a strong interest in procuring the coins and are enthusiastic about one day visiting the National Coast Guard Museum - the continued support of Congress is vital if these aspirations are to become reality.
