    With the way things are going now, I wish we could have one of these statues on every street corner in every town in America - to remind us of who we can be and what we stand for. Semper Fi!

    There is already an identical statue on the bridge access leaving Ft. Myers heading towards Cape Coral. Wouldn't it look like there are too many of the same piece of artwork?
