FUNDING OF A SUBMARINE MEMORIAL
AT THE UTAH VETERANS MEMORIAL CEMETERY

 
A bill in the Utah House is sponsered by David L. Zolman:

AN ACT RELATING TO APPROPRIATIONS; APPROPRIATING $60,000 FOR
FISCAL YEAR 1998-99 TO ASSIST AND PROVIDING FUNDING.

(Note: As of 2-26-98 this bill has passed the house and 2 readings of the Senate.)


COLD WAR SUBMARINE MEMORIAL
AT PATRIOTS POINT, CHARLESTON SC
The memorial will be constructed around the actual sail (conning tower) and rudder of USS LEWIS AND CLARK SSBN-644. The hull form and surrounding contoured landscaping will provide the unmistakable appearance of a submarine underway, surfaced, standing out to sea. Situated adjacent to the submarine hull will be a flagpole on a raised platform with a compass rose inlaid in its deck. The Memorial will be an integral part of Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum. The Museum is home of the World War II aircraft carrier USS YORKTOWN, the diesel submarine USS CLAMAGORE, the destroyer USS LAFFEY, the USCG Cutter INGHAM and the nationís Congressional Medal of Honor Museum. By establishing the Cold War Submarine Memorial at Patriots Point, recognition of the role of our Armed Forces as represented by our Submarines and Submariners during the Cold War will be forever preserved. The awesome "power for peace" of the Fleet Ballistic Missile Submarine, a strategic deterrent force - at sea, undetectable, vigilant, and survivable - will be visualized for this and future generations to behold and understand.
