Our first stop this morning is Mayport Naval Station; a major Navy base that has grown to become the third-largest fleet concentration in the U.S. (i.e. Cruisers, Destroyers, and Frigates). We will take a driving tour with our base guide who takes us past the barracks with the million-dollar view, the fire trainer, the wet trainer, and air operations. Lunch will be at a base conference center along the ocean. After lunch, we drive to Downtown Jacksonville to stop at the Jacksonville Memorial Wall. At the Wall, we will disembark to pay tribute to our fallen veterans and hear the stories of the local heroes. We continue driving through Downtown Jacksonville to hear the exploits of the city’s namesake, Andrew Jackson, and the famous architects who descended upon the city after the Great Fire of 1901.
