As a history buff this was definitely on my list of sites to see. One of only two international cemeteries in the US. I thought it was very moving and very large in it's significance even though it's a very small area/site. Very limited parking but definitely go see this if you're anywhere near it. Definitely recommend.

Out for a walk, I went here. This is not an attraction I would go out of my way to visit, but I do respect all of the sailors who gave their lives during WWII.

It was very moving to come here and read the info posted about the men who gave their lives protecting our state/country. I will come back and bring my grand children. What an outstanding piece of history and thank you USCG for maintaining this memorial for all to see. Free, easy to access and good info posted.

to home even though the majority of the war was on distant shores. It is also a reminder that sailors and soldiers from other countries dies protecting the United States. Small, but a nicely maintained by the local Coast Gaurdsmen.

The story behind this place is good. Small place but the only place in USA that the land was deeded to another country.
