To observe the 50th anniversary of the Korean Conflict, the US Navy Memorial in Washington is encouraging Navy, Coast Guard, Marines and Merchant Marine personnel, active service or veterans to enroll in the Navy Log.
The Log has collected names and service information of 245,000 present and former naval personnel. Enrollments form a part of America’s enduring naval heritage, a permanent and publicly accessible video register. It is available for viewing at the Naval Heritage Center next to the Memorial on Pennsylvania Avenue, midway between the White House and the Capitol or on the Memorial’s web site, www.lonesailor.org.
Each Log entry contains entrant’s name, date and place of birth, dates and branch of naval service, highest rate or rank attained, up to five top medals and awards and five duty stations. Log enrollments help support the Memorial’s educational programs, which honor, preserve and celebrate America’s naval heritage.
The Navy Memorial Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization that receives no government support for building and operating the Navy Memorial and adjoining Naval Heritage Center.
