Coast Watchers image

On December 7, 1941, the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor was attacked. Japan’s attempt to destroy the Pacific Fleet and its defenders damaged or destroyed twelve U.S. warships and 188 aircraft. Now with 2.403 American servicemen and women and 68 civilians killed, America was at war. Over 100,000 SeaScouts answered the call to defend our nation - thousands more, too young to enlist, sold war bonds, collected materials, and watched our coasts.

 
The heroic Coast Watchers sculpture has been commissioned and will be placed at the National Boy Scout Museum in Irving, Texas to commemorate all those who selflessly served their country in World War II, and those who continue to serve today.
