The United States Navy Memorial which is located on Pennsylvania Avenue between 7th and 9th Street,  is a tribute to men and women who are a part of the Navy’s history, present, and future.  The plaza is a round ceremonial amphitheater paved in granite to form a 100-foot diameter map of the world. The plaza’s deck is surrounded by fountains, pools, flagpole masts, and sculptural panels depicting historic achievements of the sea services. The symbolic statue of a Lone Sailor also stands watch near the edge of the plaza.
