The Coast Guard has served in every war the United States has been involved with since the Revolutionary War. In World War I six Coast Guard cutters joined the US Naval forces in European waters. The USCGC Tampa was torpedoed and sank, all 115 hands were lost, this was the largest single event loss of life for the Coast Guard in any campaign.
During World War II the US Coast Guard rescued more than 2500 survivors of torpedo attacks and over 1500 more were rescued during the D-Day (Operation Overlord) landings at Normandy. During the war the Coast Guard manned 802 cutters, 351 naval ships and craft and 288 Army vessels. Almost 2000 Coast Guardsmen died during World War II. One, Douglas A. Munro received a Medal of Honor for his actions saving the lives of many Marines during the Guadalcanal campaign.
