"The Lone sailor statue, wearing a peacoat and carrying the seabag, is a reminder of bluejacket sailors, former and current.  It is a testament to all the cold nights they, and I, have spent waiting for the bus back to the ship, standing on a foreign pier waiting to board, or standing the mid watch underway lookout or quarterdeck watch."
