The memorial centers on the statue of a single sailor standing on a vast map of the world. Sculpted in bronze by Stanley Bleifeld in 1990, it is a poignant tribute to the men and women who have served in the US Navy. Behind the memorial, the Naval Heritage Center has historical exhibits and portraits of famous naval personnel. A free film, At Sea, is shown at 2pm.
