Each year, senior Navy leadership, the Navy Memorial Board of Directors, our esteemed corporate partners, Washington dignitaries, and key influencers gather to honor our newest award recipients at the Lone Sailor Awards Dinner.

The Lone Sailor Award is given to Sea Service veterans who have excelled with distinction in their respective careers during or after their service. The award recipients will join an impressive list of men and women who have distinguished themselves by drawing upon their military experience to become successful in their subsequent careers and lives, while exemplifying the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment.

Show your support for the men and women of the Sea Services by joining us in the celebration of our revered nominees. Compete in silent auctions, enjoy a seated dinner, and listen to incredible performances by the United States Navy Band.


Attendees will also hear directly from our 2018 honorees. The stories of their lives both in and beyond the Sea Services are powerful – tales of dedication, loyalty, and ultimate success.
