The Naval Aviation Monument on 25th Street at the oceanfront is intended to educate the public on the roles of Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard aviation as key elements in national defense, from 1911 through the 21st century. The monument features statues that showcase the history of Naval Aviation in three general categories: the earliest years, World War II and the period from the Korean War to the present. This statue, named The Homecoming, shows an aviator returning home to his family.
