The 75th Anniversary of that event will occur later this year, on December 7, 2016.
A New Statue
As a component of this year’s Pearl Harbor anniversary events, the U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit organizations, plans to erect a statue at the Pearl Harbor Memorial site in Hawaii according to a kusi.com article. U.S. Money Reserve’s new commemorative coins relating to the Pearl Harbor attack helped to fund this project.
The Foundation President and CEO, a retired Naval officer, praised the commemorative coins as a fine tribute to members of the Greatest Generation. His organization appreciated the financial support provided by customers of U. S. Money Reserve.
A Timely Work of Art
The statue by sculptor Stanley Bleifeld depicts a seaman standing beside a naval gunney sack with his hands in his pockets staring into the distance. The Lone Sailor pays a timeless tribute to the dedication of individual sailors who spent long periods of time at sea during World War II. It also seeks to pay respect to sailors serving on U. S. Navy vessels today.
The statue consists of 1700 pounds of bronze mounted on steel. The designer included metal from the U.S.S. Arizona as a part of the underlying base of the statue. During the early morning attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, warplanes dealt a devastating blow to the United States Navy, which had ordered many battle ships to anchor at Pearl Harbor, the home of the Pacific Fleet.
