Welcome to the Arizona Silent Service Memorial (ASSM) Foundation

     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.  For more information about the submarine veteran engraved brick pavers, please click here or visit the Order Brick Pavers page on this site.

     Fund raising efforts have begun and the ASSM Committee welcomes any assistance you may give, monetary or in-kind building.  The project must be funded prior to building and the project must be completed in three years.  Please go to the How to Donate or click the "make a donation" icon to the left, if you are able to assist our efforts. 

    We invite you to visit the website for updates. If you would like to be added to our email listing which will provide periodic information about the progress of the Arizona Silent Service Memorial, please click here

    Thank you for your support, and tell your friends, we would appreciate it.
