The Unites States Navy Memorial
“Any man who may be asked . . . what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: ‘I served in the United States Navy.”
~ President John F. Kennedy ~
As we stop to honor and remember our Veteran’s today, I offer you a look at the Navy Memorial, on Pennsylvania Avenue, in Washington, D.C.; let us never forget the great sacrifice of the men and women in uniform who have fought for freedom.
“Throughout its history, the Navy has seen vessels of wood, iron, and steel, along with one constant – the men and women of the U.S. ay. Displaying the Navy’s core values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment, these Sailors will continue to defend and represent the United States honorably at home and around the globe.
This living memorial, crafted from granite, bronze, and water, honors the proud men and women of the sea services – past, presents, and future. Indeed, the memorial’s grand, sweeping scale illustrates the evolution of the Navy from the early days of sail to the modern era of nuclear power.”
