This sculpture was cut into a wave like shape, representing us moving forward, away from 9/11.  The Utah Fallen Warrior Memorial is dedicated to all the Gold Star Families in Utah, who have lost loved ones who served from the Gulf War to present day.  The entire community of Salt Lake City came together to build the memorial grounds at the museum from a grass lawn into a mini parklike atmosphere.  Home Depot donated many things as the pavers, landscaping, a gazebo was built for shelter and they even got one of the 2002 Utah Olympic Park Flag poles donated which sits on site.  Governor Herbert was at the dedication ceremony for this Project 911UP memorial.  This ceremony completed a 9,000 mile tour with Mountain Crane having the great honor of bringing out to the people, this memorial to see along the way.  Starting at Sans’ Fort Myers, Florida studio, stopping at the Atlanta Braves Stadium, NASCAR,  up to Chicago and Daley Plaza, over though the Midwest at Cardinals Stadium, down through Texas and then up to and all around the great state of Utah.  This sculpture is placed at the Fort Douglas National Military Museum.  Pictured below is Governor Herbert, with benefactors, Raette and Dave Belcher who were part owners of Mountain Crane and reside in Utah.
