AUSTIN, Texas, March 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Money Reserve, one of the world's largest gold and silver distributors, and the U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation jointly announce a Lone Sailor Statue to be installed at Pearl Harbor. This patriotic statue is dedicated in appreciation to the men and women across the globe, in the Sea Services, who voluntarily put their lives in harm's way to protect freedom. The Lone Sailor, the iconic image of the U.S. Navy Memorial, is the embodiment of honor, respect and devotion to duty - these values have been the basis of our maritime strength throughout our history, and contributed to America's security and prosperity. The statue is meant to inspire youth and honor sea service men, women and their families, past... present... future.
A majority of the funding for this seven-foot bronze statue is coming directly from a portion of the proceeds of U.S. Money Reserve's sales from its exclusive 75th Anniversary Pearl Harbor Gold and Silver Coins. The 75th Anniversary Pearl Harbor Gold Coin beautifully and respectfully honors the events of December 7, 1941, "A date which will live in infamy." One hundred percent of the proceeds from sales made by U.S. Money Reserve that are committed to the U.S. Naval Memorial Foundation will help fund the Lone Sailor Statue© in Hawaii.
"This beautiful coin represents not only an important inflection point in our nation's history, but it is a remembrance of the greatest generation who went on to win this war." John Totushek, VADM USN (Ret) President and CEO, U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) corporation.
The bronze statue is the creation of Stanley Bleifeld, the U.S. Navy Memorial's official sculptor. The statue contains two pieces: the Sailor who stands 7 feet tall and weighs approximately 1000 lbs., and his sea bag and cleat weighing 700 lbs. Uniquely, steel from the USS Arizona will be incorporated into the base of the Lone Sailor Statue.
