  • “This memorial serves as a marker for America’s merchant mariners resting in the unmarked ocean depths.” Twice a day one of the statues "drowns" as he's covered by water at high tide, just our of reach of his fellow seamen who are trying to rescue him. The sculpture is based on the real life event of the sinking of the Muskogee during World War 2.
  • Worthy memorial to the Merchant Marines who served in the wars without the same respect as the navy. I lost an uncle who served on a Liberty ship in 1944. RIP Izzy Schaffer
