May all who pass this memorial recognize the brave men and women who have served in the United States Navy. This memorial stands in tribute to their honorable service that has changed the course of human events.

Serving in Duluth since 1898, their patriotism and sacrifice have preserved the freedom of the high seas and made this port what it is today. On every continent and ocean, Northwoods Sailors have proudly promoted peace and security so the world would be a better place for our children.

Fair winds and following seas.
