Man In The Sea Memorial Monument at the Washington DC Navy Yard

The project team for the Man In The Sea Memorial Monument that will be installed at the Washington DC Navy yard, home of the original “Hard Hat Diving School” along the Anacostia River is proud to announce that they still have the 22” Bronze replicas of the monument available for purchase.

Bertram, TX, USA – February 03, 2012 — The project team for the Man In The Sea Memorial Monument that will be installed at the Washington DC Navy yard, home of the original “Hard Hat Diving School” along the Anacostia River is proud to announce that they still have the 22” Bronze replicas of the monument available for purchase. These replicas are not mass produced, and exquisite detail is put into each and every one of these on a one by one basis. These fine collector statues are made here in America by the well known bronze sculptural artist and former Navy Submariner Jim H. Smith. Each replica takes hours to complete the attachments and details on the statue which in our opinion makes it a museum like quality for you to enjoy in your home or office.

Mr. Jeff West, the Military Diving Director said that “These replicas show in scale every item on the old hard hat rig (Jake) that was used by thousands of military divers, and displays what the actual full scale monument will look like once it is constructed”. Homeland Security Policy Institute Group, Inc. is a IRS approved 501c3 Non-Profit California corporation who has been in existence since 2003 working to help promote information sharing between the private and public sectors and assisting our law enforcement agencies and military veterans across the country in various ways.

In June of 2011 (HSPIG) got the approval from the US Navy to proceed with the fundraising efforts for the project. Mr. Kenneth Dreger, CEO said “This effort has taken thousands of man hours and years of effort by the team and the US Navy commands past and present but finally we made it!” No other monument to all military divers has undertaken the enormous effort to create a fully sanctioned memorial monument in the heart of Washington DC.

This monument will reside at the US Navy yard, home to the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) where it will stand along the Anacostia River and be open to the public soon after completion from the Anacostia River Walk that is being built in the nearby surroundings to the US Navy base. This will allow thousands of people every year to see this great monument and visit the WNY base as well as provide an area for the US Navy to have special events and greet foreign dignitaries at the monument.

Let us put you down for one of these fine replica statues today, the cost for one statue is approximately $3900 + Shipping and packaging and if you would like a solid 360 degree rotating mount just add in $200 for the granite base.

If you would like to donate to HSPIG, please visit our web site at http://www.hspig.org, we accept PayPal donations, checks, and various other items you may wish to donate to us so we can raise funds for the projects. We know these economic times are challenging for all of us, our donations are down and we need your help to achieve the goal of creating this monument. Your donations are tax deductible also.

Please help us in this funding effort, we need to raise $500,000 by this June to make our goals and get the statue commissioned and the architectural plans finalized with the US Navy and our architects HDR.

ShipsBells App for the iPhone

December 27, 2010 – You could be one of the millions who have deep love for the sea. There are many people who would love to be part of the sea going crew but not all can make it. Why not create an environment that will always remind you of what you love most?

ShipsBells App for the iPhone is a wonderful application that plays the sound of ship bells. The ships bells helps regulate the duty watches of the sailing crew at all times. However, the way it works is a little different from a normal clock. The bells ring after every half an hour hence offering you the chance to be part of what you would love most. It reminds you of the sea always even if you are in the mid of your sleep.

ShipBells can be downloaded and stored in your iPhone, iPad Touch or iPad at any time.

At a very affordable price of 0.99 dollars everyone can definitely afford to buy these great entertaining sounds. They are periodically updated and you will need to pay once for the rights to use the nautical bells. You can get the support you need at any time from the developers of the ShipBells App. There is also a nautical clock ShipsClock app that produces the sounds of a ship’s clock.

The ShipBells plays in the background after setting the intervals and does not need to be running – so there is no abnormal drain on the battery.. After paying for App at Apple’s App store via iTunes, it can be downloaded immediately to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad

This Application is simply stunning. It’s among the best applications that can be stored in your iPhone. What’s more interesting is that the ShipsBells need not to be running to ring in the background. They are automatically set to provide you with that soothing nautical bell sound after half an hour interval. You do not need to export it to another gadget to listen to the nice sound.

If you are into things nautical, the ships bells can work pretty well for you. The bells will continuously remind you of the sea. More interesting features are to be added, hence making it a great application.

Here is some of the feedback received from people who have purchased the ShipsBells and ShipsClock apps:



Thanks – now it´s a great app. I´ll recommend it to friends. Good luck Juergen

I’ve been looking for a clock like this for a long time. I’ve tried both the Ship’s Bells and the Ship’s Clock. …A few minor tweaks and it would be perfect… … With these mnor fixes, I think this would be the 1st perfect App. Thanx David
