| The ASSM will be the thirty-third memorial located in Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza, located in front of the Arizona State Capital Complex, 1700 W. Washington Street, Phoenix, AZ.
The Memorial to honor the "silent service" of Navy submarine veterans was begun by a small group of Arizona submarine veterans and the design team of Renee Palmer-Jones (Designer), Jim Martin (Engineer), Steve Rusch (Draftsman/Model Maker), and Kenny Wayne, (Sculptor). State Senator Al Melvin
presented Senate Bill 1401 to the legislature, it passed and was signed into law
on April 24, 2014.
The ASSM will stand 14 feet long, 6 feet wide and 11 feet high. It will carry the plaques of the Great Seal of the United States, Seal of the United States Navy, submarine dolphins (exemplified above: gold. representing officers and silver representing the enlisted) and dedication. Pavers commemorating submarine veterans service will be placed around the Memorial.
