CLEVELAND, Sept. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- On Friday, September 10th, the anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie, the eighteenth Lone Sailor Statue in the world was dedicated at the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland, Ohio. The Lone Sailor stands as an icon, symbolizing the Navy Memorial's mission to honor, recognize, and celebrate the men and women of the sea services. The statue in Cleveland is the 18th Lone Sailor in the world and joins other statues in Normandy, France, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and the original statue in Washington, D.C.

The statue's placement in Cleveland will be moved to the Lake Erie waterfront in Cleveland as part of the USS Cleveland Legacy Foundation's effort which also includes the commissioning of the USS Cleveland (LCS 31) and endowment that will prepare the ship to become a museum ship upon its decommissioning.

The Lone Sailor will stand watch over Lake Erie and provide a focal point for an ongoing celebration of Navy culture and greatness for all to enjoy as they visit Cleveland. Cleveland native and host of the Price Is Right, Drew Carey, as well as numerous other veterans, USS Cleveland Legacy Foundation Board Members, senior business leaders, elected officials and the Navy Memorial's President and CEO, retired Rear Admiral Frank Thorp attended the Dedication Ceremony.

Recognizing the official party as well as the directors of the U.S.S. Cleveland Legacy Foundation, Chairman Jim Folk said, "It is really a privilege to stand here in such esteemed company and your collective support of our mission... is overwhelming."

Folke was joined at the stand by 2021 Lone Sailor Award Honoree Drew Carey and Frank Thorp. "This is a fantastic moment for the people of Cleveland and the U.S. Navy Memorial. We are so proud to have this remarkable symbol honoring the Navy available for all to see in the great city of Cleveland," Thorp remarked. 2021 Lone Sailor Honoree Drew Carey commented, "I'm glad I could be part of this to recognize everyone who is in the sea services."
