National POW/MIA Memorial at the National Cemetery at March ARB in Riverside, CA
In 2005, Loran Whitehorn served as the project manager for Tilden-Coil for the design-build of the POW/MIA Memorial at the Riverside National Cemetery. The project included redesigning the landscapeing, installing the memorial and a pre-built bridge, constructing and finishing the flatwork surrounding the memorial and building the concrete slab around the memorial. One unique element of this construction was that the existing lake needed to be moved to accomodate the memorial. Mr. Whitehorn's team surveyed and regarded for appropriate drainage, and re-contoured the shape of the lake to fit the new design. Before construction could begin. Mr. Whitehorn's team worked with the Riverside National Cemetery Support Committee to gain approval for the design and construction plans through the U.S. Congress. To this day, visitors to the memorial are moved by the statue, inscriptions and surroundings.
