The Wall of Remembrance is the section of the Chase Hall “Hall of Heroes” corridor which honors Academy graduates who have perished while carrying out an operational mission. The Wall is appropriately adorned with the Coast Guard hymn and a flag case in the center and is flanked by the commemorative plaques of these honored individuals each which include the person’s name, photo and circumstances of their passing. In a touching display in deference to these heroes, cadets salute the flag case as they arrive for watch duty.
Let us be reminded by the sacrifice of these brave few that they died protecting America and its waters and in giving their life, exemplified the core values of Coast Guard officers: “Honor, Respect and Devotion to Duty.”
