Public Sculptures by Stanley Bleifeld seen at Vista Point, Sausalito - The Lone Sailor

The Lone Sailor

Sculptor Stanley Bleifield executed this replica statue in the center of Vista Point on the Marin County side of the Golden Gate Bridge. The original is the U.S. Navy Memorial on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.

"The Lone Sailor" represents a sailor’s last view of the West Coast as he sails out for duty at sea. The attending plaque reads: "This is a memorial to everyone who ever sailed out of the Golden Gate in the service of their Country – in the Navy, the Marine Corps, the Coast Guard, the Merchant Marine."
