Sadly, I had no idea there was more to this memorial than the towering mast with flags shown in my pictures of Memorial Plaza. I don’t think I even realized the mast towered over the largest map in the word, known as the Granite Sea. Regrettably, I didn’t even notice the Lone Sailor Statue!
Total regret for not looking into where I was and what was around me. I would have loved to go into the Naval Heritage Center and see the exhibits. And I totally would’ve taken a selfie with the Lone Sailor.
I should have pulled up Roadtrippers and figured out what was around me.
Have you been there? I’d love to hear what you thought of it. Did you meet the Lone Sailor?
