The Lone Sailor Statue in Normandy, France has been been put in place and now stands proudly on the shores of Utah Beach.
The Navy Memorial broke ground for the Lone Sailor statue on June 6, 2019. The installation was delayed and the official dedication ceremony delayed until June 6, 2022, due to the COVID pandemic.

Over the weekend, our partners in Normandy held a small French Dedication Ceremony in conjunction with other D-Day commemoration events. Installation of the commemorative plaques and preparation around the statue is still in progress.
The Lone Sailor Statue in Normandy will be the seventeenth Lone Sailor statue around the world.

Our Story

The mission of the United States Navy Memorial is to Honor, Recognize and Celebrate the men and women of the Sea Services, past, present and future; and to inform the public about their service.

The United States Navy Memorial is the triumph of a centuries-old dream for America’s Sea Services. When architect Pierre L'Enfant designed Washington, DC, he envisioned a memorial that would celebrate the rich heritage of the United States Navy, dating back to 1775 when a force of eight small wooden ships fought and won its first battle at sea.

L'Enfant's vision would be realized over two hundred years later. Navy legend and former Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Admiral Arleigh Burke decided there was enough “talk” about a Navy Memorial and that it was time to act. Burke and his Navy colleagues, including former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Tom Moore and former Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Admiral Elmo "Bud" Zumwalt worked together to form a non-profit organization called the “United States Navy Memorial Foundation” in the spring of 1977.

Under the leadership of Rear Admiral William Thompson, USN (Ret.), the United States Navy Memorial sought and received the blessing of Congress to construct a memorial on public land in the District of Columbia. A bill was introduced in the Senate and House in 1978 and was signed into law by President Carter – a U.S. Naval Academy graduate – in 1980. It would be built on the recently redeveloped Pennsylvania Avenue, also known as “America’s main street” for its prime location between the White House and Capitol Building.

On its 79th anniversary-- “A Miracle Midway Across the Pacific” Injured Navy pilot, Ensign George Gay, Jr., treaded water in the middle of the Pacific, dodging Japanese warships. Earlier that morning of June 4, 1942, Gay and his squadron of Devastator torpedo planes had attacked a fleet of Japanese aircraft carriers steaming for the strategic atoll of Midway, 1,100 miles northwest of Hawaii. Yet nimble “Zero” fighters had jumped on the lumbering, lightly armed U.S. aircraft, shooting down them all, killing 29 of the squadron’s 30 men. After a pancake landing in the ocean, Gay had scrambled out of his sinking plane. Floating in a life vest, he had a clear view of three enemy carriers: the Akagi, Kaga, and Soryu. The morning had thus far yielded more setbacks in the Second World War’s Pacific theater. On December 7, 1941, Japanese carrier planes had devastated much of the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbor. Japan soon seized control of Malaysia, the Dutch East Indies (today Indonesia), Singapore, and the Philippines, then a U.S. commonwealth. Now Tokyo aimed to sink the remnants of the U.S. Navy, and force Washington into peace talks. The skilled Admiral Isoroku Yamamato, architect of the Pearl Harbor assault, put together the plan of attack. Vice Admiral Chuichi Nagumo, who’d carried out the Pearl Harbor raid, commanded the fleet of four carriers, 229 aircraft, and supporting ships. It was backed up by two other arrays of battleships, light carriers, cruisers, and destroyers, as well as transport ships carrying Imperial Marines to seize Midway. However, the U.S. Navy was waiting and ready. Months before, intelligence experts of Project Magic had broken the Japanese Navy’s code. Some of the analysts worked out of Pearl Harbor, others in temporary barracks in Washington D.C.’s National Mall, within sight of the White House. Cryptanalysts had deciphered the ships in the oncoming fleet and the date of their arrival off Midway. U.S. Marines and airmen prepped the atoll against a sea-borne invasion. And U.S. Pacific Fleet commander Admiral Chester Nimitz ordered the carriers USS Enterprise and Hornet , skippered by Admiral Ray Spruance, to lay in ambush east of Midway. They were joined, almost miraculously, by the carrier USS Yorktown, which the Japanese believed they had sunk months before. Severely damaged, she’d been towed to Pearl Harbor where, in just 72 hours, mechanics had patched up her superstructure and flight deck. At 6:30 A.M. on June 4, aircraft from the Japanese carriers raided Midway, but failed to knock out its air base. Earlier, a U.S. patrol plane had spotted the Japanese fleet. In response, the Americans launched a series of piecemeal raids from their three carriers and from Midway. Yet the Navy torpedo planes, Marine Corps bombers, and long-range Army Air Force B-26 bombers failed to hit a single ship. Carrier-launched Zeros knocked most of them out of the sky. Meantime, Nagumo ordered his returning pilots to prepare to again attack the Midway airfield. Soon after, however, a Japanese patrol plane spotted a U.S. carrier, and radioed back word. Nagumo, alarmed, ordered a switch to an attack on the U.S. fleet. This entailed the time-consuming labor of replacing the aircrafts’ aerial bombs with anti-ship ordinance. Then Ensign Gay’s torpedo planes, and two other squadrons from the Enterprise, Hornet, and Yorktown, made their attacks. Although shot out of the sky, they delayed the launch of the next Japanese air wave, and stripped the carriers of the Zeros’ protective cover. Fatefully, three more squadrons of U.S. planes—Dauntless dive bombers from the Enterprise and Yorktown--then appeared overhead. One squadron was nearly out of enough fuel for a return flight, but its leader, Lieutenant Commander C. Wade McClusky, Jr., gambling he could get his planes home, had pressed on. The Japanese carriers--devoid of air cover, their decks crammed with high explosives and refueling planes--were caught flat-footed. The dive bombers swooped in, scoring direct hits. Flight commander Mitsuo Fuchida, a squadron chief at Pearl Harbor, witnessed the attack from the Akagi: “As the fire spread among planes lined up wing to wing on the after flight deck, their torpedoes began to explode,” he recalled. “The entire hangar area was a blazing inferno”. Ensign Gay, floating just hundreds of yards from the carriers, had a ringside seat, “cheering and hollering with every hit." Three carriers were set ablaze, and sank. Several hours later, bombers from the remaining Japanese carrier the Hiryu severely damaged the Yorktown. A Japanese submarine later sunk the gallant ship, after its crew transferred to other vessels. American carrier planes, meantime, sank the Hiryu. A shocked Admiral Yamamoto ordered his fleet to retire. Japan had lost its major maritime striking force--the very same carriers that devastated Pearl Harbor. Over 2,000 Japanese were dead, including more than 200 experienced, irreplaceable pilots. Over 330 precious aircraft were destroyed. The U.S. lost 350 sailors and airmen. When the Ensign Gay died in 1994, his ashes were scattered over the position where his squadron’s fellow pilots had sacrificed themselves in 1942, leading to the incredible victory of Midway, the turning point of the Second World War in the Pacific.

Some found DC's rebuilt World War One memorial underwhelming. A mostly barren, wind-swept public space of stone. Retains Gen. Pershing statue, while adding an unfinished, tarp-covered frieze of soldiers heading into war. No sense of the period's great drama, excitement, fear. Hard to understand military maps and text. Nothing or almost nothing about vital role of Navy, domestic industry, dissent, trench & gas warfare, Spanish flu, Versailles Treaty. Dwarfed by Willard Hotel and other nearby buildings. Odd "puddle" of inch-deep water pool near bas relief. For years construction site had evocative war-time posters, none of that in memorial. 9 years, $40 million. Few visitors, little buzz. https://www.facebook.com/LafayetteSquareTourOfScandalAssassinationIntrigue/photos/pcb.3552038954899970/3552038174900048/

I'm not sure this is the right place to ask this but I'm honestly not sure where to ask. . I have an Armed Forces Liberty Pass from 3-6-52 for a Raymond Geisler. He served on the U.S.S. Helena CA-75, the issuing officer was R.L. Kirkland ENS. USN. . I don't know who this gentleman is/was I'm not sure if he was friends with my father (Who served in the Indianapolis) or if this was something he found on the ground somewhere and held on to it. I found it in a box of photos and other things. . I know it's an absolute shot in the dark, but if there is anyone related to this gentleman and would like this I'd be happy to send this to them. Not sure how I would verify, but yeah. . I don't know how confidential (At this point probably moot anyway) the information is with service no, grade rate etc, so I won't post a photo of this unless I can get verification that that info can't be used in a negative way. . Ps... I'm sure this guy is going to be excited to finally get to use this pass after 68 years ;)
