Chase and his helpers created a display case, table and flag holder for the USS Arizona Memorial exhibit at the Jefferson Barracks POW/MIA Museum.
The museum’s exhibit includes a piece of the USS Arizona battleship that was sunk at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, when 1,177 sailors and marines were lost. It also includes an exhibit-condition model of the ship, a flag that was flown at the USS Arizona Memorial and a container of oil/water mix that was gathered from the site of the sunken battleship.
Chase’s project will be the centerpiece of a room at the museum.
