New Scorpion Memorial at AIMM

This past weekend, Bob Nesbitt of Flooring Consultants, Inc., began work on a memorial to USS Scorpion on the grounds of the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum.  While a few details remain to be “touched up”, the memorial is complete enough to show.

The memorial is outside the gate, so it will be accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The text at the bottom reads:

In Memory of ETN2 Richard G. Schaffer
1963 Graduate of Sylvan Hills High School
Crewmember USS Scorption (SSN-589)

Dedicated to the 99 Men of the USS Scorpion (SSN-589)
Declared Lost With All Hands 5 June 1968

To All Those on Eternal Patrol

Bob and his company donated all the design work and are installing the memorial for free.
