USS Thresher National Memorial Design


Initial concepts are being considered for the design of the USS Thresher National Memorial. The initial plans are to build and design a relatively modest memorial containing the names of the 129 men lost aboard USS Thresher, as well as a commemorative bas-relief sculpture.


The size anticipated will be slightly larger than the Space Shuttle Columbia memorial shown in the photos below.
