Located on the south end of Lady Bird Johnson Park, and dedicated in 1934, the Navy and Merchant Marine Memorial was built in honor of those who died in service during World War I, as well as those who have "given life or still offer it in the performance of heroic deeds." The sculpture depicts seven gulls over the crest of a wave.

Sculptor: Ernesto Begni del Piatta
