Memorial Day

The Lone Sailor

I thought this picture I took of The Lone Sailor was an apt one for today.

It is of a sailor, duffel bag at his side, gazing out across the water towards the bridge of the Battleship USS Wisconsin. Behind the statue are eight plaques commemorating Norfolk-based ships and submarines and one dedicated to the September 11th attack on the Pentagon.

It's a very simple memorial and a very moving one.
