Located along the walkway adjacent to the Battleship Wisconsin, the statue is a lovely tribute to sailors who have sacrificed so much for the United States. It is a nice stroll from the Nauticus Museum past the Wisconsin to the Freemason area of Norfolk.

Well placed statue overlooking the USS Wisconsin, but not a destination on its own. Kinda cool to visit while you are already in the area, and to give the kids a little education.

After getting off a ship I passed a statue of Ronald McDonald sitting on a bench then passed this Lone Sailor Statue. Both together drove the job home.

This is truly the one statue that represents the tradition of the US Navy. There are plaques describing accidents and incidents where sailors who sailed from Norfolk on various ships, lost thir lives. A great tribute!

He represents all who've served our country to preserve our freedom. He looks out over the harbor and the mighty Wisconsin.

Lifelike statue epitomizes sailors throughout the years getting ready to board their ship for service across the sea. In the shadow of the USS Wisconsin it is a fitting tribute to those who have sacrificed and will sacrifice so much.

The Navy sailor statue is a well done likeness of an American sailor.He looks as if he is waiting to board the USS Wisconsin.He almost looks ghostly if you pass by him after the sun has set.
