Can we talk about the gorgeousness that is the Navy-Merchant Marine Memorial? My husband is a runner and runs a lot of trails around the area and he saw this memorial in Lady Bird Johnson Park but didn’t know what it was for so we decided to stop to check this one off on our statue quest.
This memorial honors the American sailors and marines killed at sea during World War I and was completed in 1934.
It’s a memorial that’s off the beaten path for me but so unexpectedly beautiful. I also loved all of the red tulips surrounding the memorial.
I couldn’t find much online about the memorial but it was definitely a beautiful gem off of the GW Parkway.
