This is a life sized monument of a swimmer seal. He is quite beautiful and lokks real. However, I like the side lined Honer and Courage motiffs that showed how the Navy Seals are honroed.

For those of us who have served our country this monument renews the realization that there are still those who will do what is required to keep us all safe. Thanks SEALs and all who serve.

We walked up on the event already in progress, it was very interesting in seeing the history of the SEAL's. Good history lesson. Much respect to these brave men!

Inspiring! We have some great friends who are Seals. The monument is a awesome dedication to these “true warriors” who protect our country! God’s blessings to each and everyone of them!

An unexpected monument while walking the boardwalk, we stopped in here briefly to learn some history and honor our fallen Navy SEALs. Quite impressive that the city of Virginia Beach built this and offers it for free. Worth stopping in on and seeing.

I think this is located around 35th St. on the boardwalk. It is truly impressive, and it is worth taking the time to read everything on the sculpture.
