Navy Seal Monument

3800 Atlantic Ave Virginia Beach, VA 23451

772-595-5845

Region: Oceanfront North (26-40), Virginia Beach

Description

A public monument honoring Navy SEALs was long overdue – until the Museum created one on the Virginia Beach Boardwalk.

Although a great number of SEAL forerunners trained in Ft. Pierce during World War Two starting in 1943, the earliest SEAL predecessors came together in Virginia Beach in 1942. These volunteers for special missions distinguished themselves in combat during Operation TORCH in North Africa later that year.
Over time, the SEAL Museum and then other major SEAL heritage sites erected identical Naked Warrior statues to honor their Frogmen, leaving Virginia Beach as the sole SEAL heritage site with no SEAL marker for the general public.
