Turner Industries Employees Install WWII-Era Torpedo at Veterans’ Park

On May 24, Beaumont, TX Turner Industries employees lifted and installed a WWII-era MK-16 torpedo at the Golden Triangle Veterans’ Memorial Park in Port Arthur, TX. The placement, completed just in time for a Memorial Day service, was in the works for nearly a year and involved multiple Turner Industries divisions. Jobsite Superintendent, Ed Walker, designed the footings and worked with his team to install them along with the foundations. Estimators, Jarrod Sonnier and Colby Plaia, designed the stainless steel supports that now hold the one-ton torpedo in place. Equipment Supervisor, Terry Love, and his crane and rigging crew offloaded the torpedo and safely placed it onto its new display among the other military artifacts. A sincere thank you to all the Turner Industries employees that helped make this special project a reality.
