I stopped by the US Navy Memorial this morning to meet up with one of my friends who works there. Tony was a big supporter of the Memorial, donating money to create a commemorative wall, etc and I am looking to continue his support in his name.
I had a tour with tonight's Lone Sailor award recipients and their families and then a quick lunch. We will all meet later tonight for the black tie dinner.
While touring the Memorial outside, I came across the following quotes used on bronze plaques to commemorate various branches of the US Navy. I just wanted to share some!
Explosive Ordinance Disposal: "Initial success or total failure"
Navy Family: "They who wait also serve"
Navy Chaplains: "Eternal Father strong to save"
Medicine: "Standing by to assist"
Reservists: "Twice a citizen"
Navy SEALS: "Failure is not an option"
