I believe it was Mr. Blankenship that said ...they couldn't get something with military meaning past the Arts Commission...The Marines built and staffed the airport. There were countless Marines in support positions there as well as pilots.The airport was a significant factor in training during the war and this deserves to be recognized. The current "memorial" plan does nothing to impart the the very proud history of the of the airport to visitors.I have great admiration for the group that would like to build a memorial, but this is not a memorial...it is ART (similar but infinitely better than the infamous and extremely offensive chromatic gate).The arts commission should concede to a legitimate memorial which recognizes the men and women who staffed and trained at the Marine Base in WWII.
