Lifelike statue epitomizes sailors throughout the years getting ready to board their ship for service across the sea. In the shadow of the USS Wisconsin it is a fitting tribute to those who have sacrificed and will sacrifice so much.

Just across the inlet from the port side of the USS Wisconsin, this is a quick little stop to say 'hello' to the lonely sailor. Nice view of the Big Whisky from Wisconsin Square where this lonely sailor is standing.
