History of this Crucifix

Nicknamed "Fighting Mary" the battleship Maryland was the pride of the United States Navy.

She was present at Pearl Harbor during the attack on December 7, 1941.

Battered yet sturdy, the ship entered Puget Sound Navy Yard on December 30th.

She emerged February 26, 1942 repaired, modernized, and ready for service.

She went on to receive 7 battle stars for her WWII service.

From the Craftsman:

“This WWII Battleship Maryland altar crucifix was gifted to my family by the ship’s chaplain when the ship was decommissioned. In over 30 years of wood working, the project in which I have derived the greatest joy and meaning is in replicating this crucifix.”
