Coast Guard City Monument

Dedicated on September 6, 2018, the Coast Guard City Monument in Traverse City, Michigan honors and celebrates the United States Coast Guard’s presence in this lakeside city since 1946. Traverse City is one of 21 communities formally recognized by Congress as Coast Guard Cities and serves as the base for rescue aircraft operations over all of Lake Michigan, as well as the majority of Lake Huron and Lake Superior.

The sculpture at the center of the monument is based on a design submitted by a student from Traverse City West High School, entitled “Guardian.” It depicts the artist’s representation of a MH-65 “Dolphin” air rescue helicopter.
