Not much of a kick. Maybe if you are a US navy veteran it is exiting but I cannot get much out of it. Even forgot to take a picture of the marine guy statue.

Both the memorial and the Heritage Center are must visits for anyone that served in the sea services. The Heritage center is small, but it does have some nice displays, and a wonderful library of books.

The Museum is very accessible but hidden behind doors which look like they are leading into an ordinary storefront. Very thorough briefing of the history and heritage of the Navy in the below street level facility. No charge to visit and easy to navigate (yes, there is a gift shop with lots of Navy souveniers). This is a compact view of the Navy and will whet your appetite to learn more.

The United States Memorial is very impressive with its semi-circular enclosure of buildings, Lone Sailor statue, two towering masts, bronze sculptures depicting Navy history, and fountains representing the seven seas and the 5 American Great Lakes. Relaxing place to sit, enjoy the day, and rest a bit while out visiting all the tourist sites.

I was expecting a little more with this memorial. The fountains surrounding the memorial are pretty. Not much to see in the way of a memorial.
