A replica of The Homecoming© statue was dedicated in Kirkland on July 4, 2001. The statue overlooks Puget Sound from its location in Marina Park. The Homecoming© is dedicated to Navy families, and is Kirkland's "heartwarming expression" of family unity. Kirkland is also called "the city of outdoor statues" so The Homecoming© is also a participant of the city's artistic expression.
The Homecoming© statue was sponsored solely by donations from local businesses and individuals who wanted to express their appreciation to the families "who also serve."
