The Maryland WWII memorial was a tremendous collaborative experience executed in the early years of Rugo Stone. This memorial is dedicated to the casualties of Maryland, who perished and is located on Route 450, overlooking the Naval Academy.
The design calls for a series of stone-clad columns which straddle large upright tablets displaying the over 6,000 casualties form Maryland. Rugo was instrumental in offering design savings suggestions for material types and methods pf engraving. The project included custom sandblasted developed globes for both the Atlantic and Pacific theatres. The granite elements and their engraving is a lasting memory to these brave men and women who gave their lives in defense of freedom.
