A plaque honoring the life and service of BM1 Edgar Culbertson is adorned with lily flowers during a memorial service on the 42nd anniversary of his death during a rescue attempt on this same pier. There are also three iris flowers, one for each of the three brothers lost along with BM1 Culbertson, who was posthumously awarded the Coast Guard Medal for his heroism.
