Navy Memorial Relief Sculptures

I've always had an affinity for the Navy Memorial on Pennsylvania Avenue across from the Archives.

My great grand father told me stories of his adventures as a shipworker in Baltimore and then in the navy in WWI. my grandfather raised me on his stories of service a PT boat in the south pacific during WWII.

I always think of them each and every time walk by this place. I also think about the terrific sculptures depicting different aspects of navy life.
here are all the relief sculptures
