Naval Diving and Salvage Training Bronze Sculpture
“The Mark V Monument Project” originally undertook the mission to obtain the necessary Navy approval and private funding to fabricate and erect a ten foot tall bronze/granite JAKE monument at the entrance to the Naval Diving and Salvage Training Center in Panama City, Florida. JAKE was designed to stand on a granite base with each side of the pentagonal shape displaying a bronze seal of one of the five services of the U.S. Military.
This monument would be formally dedicated to all U.S. Military diver graduates, past, present and future of all of the U.S. Navy Diving Schools who go down in the sea to work. This monument would celebrate forever the traditions of divers around the world who have given their life’s work to underwater ships husbandry, underwater construction, salvage of ships lost at sea, combat, and clandestine missions. opens in a new windowREAD MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT HERE….
