Coast Guard Veterans, Retired and Active-Duty Personnel

You are always welcome at USCGC LILAC.

If you are planning to visit, please contact us directly to arrange a private tour.  (If you don't, the crew has instructions to stop whatever they are doing to show you around, but advance notice is appreciated.)

If you are a LILAC veteran, we would like to collect your reminiscences. Please let us know if you are willing to be recorded and if you can share photos or other memorabilia of your time on board.

If you are traveling to New York City and need a place to stay, the Soldiers', Sailors', Marines', Coast Guard & Airmen's Club offers affordable accommodations.
