Lone Sailor


This bronze sailor was about eight feet tall...

A little more from the memorial plaque:
"Thousands and thousands of American seafarers have sailed past this place, in peace and war, to defend this country and it's sea frontiers. Many of them never returned. This monument is dedicated to the ordinary sailors and marines who sailed from this place and did their duty."
