We had been walking to several museums and other locations on our first day in D.C., but because we were still new to the metro system decided to come back to the Archives stop for our return trip. That's when we discovered a small museum for the Navy on the corner. The Naval Heritage Center is quite condensed-- a small selection of Navy uniforms, models of ships, and portraits of Presidents who served in the Navy, some plaques, and a corner gift shop. It seems diminutive in comparison to the larger memorials and monuments, but it serves a wonderful purpose.
Navy Log. For anyone who has a family member who served, I would encourage you to download the outreach brochure that helps put together the information needed for the Navy Log so your loved one can be included in their records.
I have designs to scan in Smallgood Pop's photographs from his time in service, so stay on the look out for that post. My grandfather didn't serve particularly long, but by golly he took a lot of pictures and in his preciseness captioned them all.
