Coast Guard Ice Patrol commemorates the Titanic

New London — Members of the U.S. Coast Guard International Ice Patrol participated in a ceremony Wednesday to commemorate the sinking of the RMS Titanic.

An annual wreath drop serves as a way to remember and honor those who died on the Titanic. The Ice Patrol was formed after the passenger liner hit an iceberg and sank in the early morning of April 15, 1912. 

The wreaths from the ceremony will be dropped near where the ship sank during an iceberg reconnaissance flight in the next few weeks, Cmdr. Marcus Hirschberg said.
