Happy Birthday U. S. Navy!

Today is the birthday of the United States Navy and in honor of those who have served (including my Dad, my brother and my father-in-law) and those who still do, here are some photos I took of the Navy Memorial in Washington D.C.

The flags:

The center of the circular memorial with a map of the world:

The statue of the sailor:

One of the many quotes engraved along the facing of the waterfall - this one from Comm. Oliver Hazard Perry who defeated the British in Lake Erie:

The plaques honoring the various divisions of the Navy and the other waterfall with fountains:

Thank you to all the sailors for all they do to keep us safe - and Happy Birthday!
