    U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters

    The U.S. Coast Guard Wednesday held a commemoration ceremony at Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington to remember the loss of all on board the Coast Guard Cutter Tampa when it was torpedoed and sunk Sept. 26, 1918, as it escorted a convoy off the coast of England.
    Participating in the ceremony were U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen, U.S. Representative Kathy Castor of Florida, Commandant of the Coast Guard Adm. Karl Schultz, Coast Guard Chaplain Thomas Walcott, and family members and representatives of the 130 people lost on the Tampa. The crew included four Navy men and 16 British passengers.

    "Tampa's crew, like our Coast Guard today, came from all walks of life," said Schultz. "Representing the finest of our nation - a melting pot of ethnicities, nationalities, backgrounds and beliefs. This is who we are as Americans and who our service strives to be: an inclusive team that values every member. Tampa was known for her high morale and outstanding teamwork; she embodied the very best tenets of our service and of our nation." U.S. Coast Guard video by Telfair Brown
