Special from the U.S. Navy Memorial

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Now through the end of July 2006, all members and veterans of the Sea Services – active duty and reservists – are able to enroll in the U.S. Navy Memorial’s Navy Log without charge and without any obligation.

The U.S. Navy Memorial, located on Pennsylvania Avenue, in Washington, D.C., is a national memorial that honors those who served, and are serving, in America’s Sea Services – Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine, but the heart of the U.S. Navy Memorial is the Navy Log.

“The Navy Log is the heart and soul of the Navy Memorial because it represents people not hardware.” said Retired Master Chief Navy Counselor (SW) David Michael, the director of the Navy Log. “They're the backbone of the Navy. The Navy is people, not ships and aircraft.”

The Navy Log is the permanent public registry where Sea Service members and veterans can record their service information – name, duty stations, awards, photos and memories. Family members and friends can record service information for veterans who are deceased or those who are unable to record their own information.

The Navy Log may be viewed at the U.S. Navy Memorial, or via the Internet at www.lonesailor.org. The goal of the Memorial is to record the service history of all eligible uniformed individuals and veterans.

“The real reason to enroll in the Navy Log is to show Navy pride and to record your service for history,” said Michael.

To enroll your information or to enroll family members simply enter the appropriate information at www.lonesailor.org. If you have any questions, please contact the Navy Log Department of the U.S. Navy Memorial, at 1-800-NAVY LOG (1-800-628-9564).
