Rip was selected by the Naval Order of the U.S. and commissioned to sculpt the monumental portrait memorial of Admiral Nimitz, which is installed at Pearl Harbor, HI along Battleship Row near the USS Missouri.
It was an honor for Rip to sculpt this WWII hero’s image and he learned so much about our “greatest generation” and about his own grandfather, a Navy seaman who served under Nimitz during the war.
