Peter Lundberg’s 65-foot tall sculpture, made largely of concrete he’d poured into a shape he’d cut into the earth of Sculpture Fields at Montague Park, was raised Tuesday, Sept. 1.
Titled “Anchors,” the sculpture also contains the remains of five anchors honoring the five service members who laid down their lives in service to their community and their country in the attack on July 16.
As a crowd watched, a crane capable of lifting 300 tons raised the sculpture and set it in place.
The names of the fallen are engraved in a plate set in stone near the base of the sculpture: Gunnery Sgt. Thomas J. Sullivan, USMC; Staff Sgt. David A. Wyatt, USMC; Sgt. Carson A. Holmquist, USMC; Lance Cpl. Squire K.P. “Skip” Wells, USMC; and Logistics Specialist 2nd Class Randall S. Smith, USN.
