Unconditional Surrender Statue Is Back At The Marina.

Posted by Bill True on

Unconditional Surrender Statue

The "Unconditional Surrender" statue has been returned to its home at Sarasota's Marina Jack.

Back in April, a woman driving a Mercedes crashed into this beloved statue causing $125,000 in damage. Unconditional Surrender was then sent off to New Jersey for repairs and, fortunately, this was covered by the driver's insurance and a very generous donation from a local non-profit company. "Unconditional Surrender" is a replica of the famous picture taken at the end of WWII of a sailor and a nurse smooching in Times Square.

After being cut into two pieces, enduring a long ride from Florida to Jersey and back again on flatbed trucks and suffering some bumps and bruises along the way, it is estimated that the statue will be fully set up for all of Sarasota residents and visitors to enjoy by December 8, 2012. Most everyone is glad to have the statue back home, not only does it represent the art and culture of the Sarasota community, but it reminds us all of the many sacrifices that were made during WWII.
