Title

Cadet Color Guard, Coast Guard Academy, New London, Conn.

Description

IIn 1932, citizens of New London donated land to the US Treasury to move the Coast Guard Academy from its original location at Fort Trumbull to its present site. This postcard depicts cadets in a uniform procession, most likely, a “Regimental Review.” This event, one of the oldest traditions at the Academy, takes place about six times a year in order to teach cadets critical qualities: confidence, leadership, and poise.
