USCGC Munro (WMSL-755) is the sixth Legend-class cutter of the United States Coast Guard.
Munro is the second cutter named for Signalman First Class Douglas A. Munro (1919-1942), the only Coast Guardsman to be awarded the Medal of Honor.
Douglas Munro was a Washingtonian who grew up in South Cle Elum, Washington. He was educated at South Cle Elum Grade School and graduated from Cle Elum High School in 1937. He attended Central Washington College of Education (now known as Central Washington University) for a year before leaving to enlist in the United States Coast Guard in 1939.
