Lone Sailor Now In Place In Bremerton, WA

Lone Sailor Statue Arrives on Bremerton’s Waterfront

As the daughter of a Navy veteran of WWII, I am happy to see this statue going up on the waterfront here in Kitsap County, WA. Bremerton is a well-liked area for Naval personnel, as well as retirees and their families. Because of our temperate climate as well as a wealth of activities that include ocean fishing, skiing, hiking and any other kind of outdoor activity you can imagine, we have become a sort of destination city and county.

Would you like to show your appreciation for all of our troops serving in the military right now? Head on over to eMOM (eMail Our Military) and see how you can make a difference!

We’re celebrating the 10th Edition of the Carnival of Images with the word prompt: Costume

This photo was most likely taken before 1904 because the youngest boy, William, died in January of that year. I have chosen this photo for the Carnival because of the elaborate dresses the ladies are wearing.
