Douglas A. Munro Memorial
Located in the Veteran’s Section, this Memorial and gravesite is dedicated to Signalman First Class, Douglas A. Munro, U.S. Coast Guard, a South Cle Elum native. During World War II the Coast Guard manned amphibious craft for the U.S. Navy. In the line of that duty, Munro was killed saving 500 Marines. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. The U. S. Navy named a destroyer escort after Munro, the Coast Guard’s only Medal of Honor recipient. The Coast Guard named a high endurance cutter for Munro. At the Munro Memorial a wall was built and dedicated to all servicemen from Cle Elum. Each war is represented on the wall with names of men and women who served.
