It was a humbling experience to stand in the shadow of this iconic statue while the USS Midway towered in the distance. Quite humbling.

I love this stature in Tuna park, it's right next door to the Uss Midway. Excellent view of the ocean and many boats. The stature reminds me of an old navy boyfriend I had when I was young, That is why I have a connection...More

This statute is right outside the USS Midway which is a very appropriate place to have it. It is truly a larger than life statue of the famous photo of the sailors coming back after WWII.

Very whimsical presentation of the reaction of many military personnel when World War II ended. Gives the young generation an opportunity to see the reaction to war’s end.

A beautiful sculpture to the side of the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum. The detail in incredible. A lovely dedication to the memorable photo and a nice photo op.

If you are in San Diego, this is a must see! We enjoyed everything in the harbor area. When there, go see the Bob Hope Memorial to the Armed Services!

This larger than life sculpture in front of the Midway never gets old - day or night. Great photo op!

You can see it from the USS Midway but it’s worth walking by it. Makes a beautiful picture on a San Diego sunset.

Saw this on the way to see the war ships. Stunning! It is a huge sculpture and a must see. You can view from every angle. Take lots of pictures, very interesting.

A beautiful piece of art 22 feet high that captures a very special impulsive moment of happiness during the bleak years of war. This statute is massive and it's location at the waterfront surrounded by ships is just perfect.

There is no entrance fee. There's a grassy spot and lots of people, I don't see why you couldn't bring your dog as long as it's on a leash.
