The article discusses topics related to the need of the U.S. Coast Guard to establish a historical center. It states that a historical center will help enhance the ability of the Coast Guard to collect, preserve, record, interpret and publish history for the service and the American people. In addition, the Coast Guard needs the center to be modeled after the one of the Navy because it has a rich and proud history that is worth collecting, preserving, and re-telling for the future generation.
