You can see the statue from the ship, but it's worth a stop as you walk around the area. What a life our sailors throughout history have had!

This is a beautiful statue over near the Waterside area. The statue is just one part of this wonderful area in Norfolk.

All the brass statues were amazing. The facial expressions were authentic and the scale was perfect. Great job to the artists that created them!!

This statue is probably not a destination on its own, unless you have a special connection, but it is good to see the human scale in contrast to the behemoth USS Wisconsin, which overlooks it at Town Point Park.

We would not have known it was there except the tour boat was leaving from that area due to NATO annual parade. Statue is a copy of the one in DC.

This statue of a sailor waiting with his gear is very poignant as it looks over at the USS Wisconsin. It made me think of a soldier waiting to go off to war without his loved ones there to see him off. Amazing statue and...More

Located along the walkway adjacent to the Battleship Wisconsin, the statue is a lovely tribute to sailors who have sacrificed so much for the United States. It is a nice stroll from the Nauticus Museum past the Wisconsin to the Freemason area of Norfolk.

Well placed statue overlooking the USS Wisconsin, but not a destination on its own. Kinda cool to visit while you are already in the area, and to give the kids a little education.
