Naked Warrior Statue:
Warm water determined the dress in the South Pacific. A swimsuit, fins, mask, and knife became the standard in the Pacific for UDT swimmers. A tan colored swimsuit on a lightly sun "tanned" swimmer, and the lack of arms for protection, gave rise to the term "Naked Warrior". CDR Francis Douglas Fane, USNR (Ret.) made the term commonplace with his book detailing exploits of early U.S. "frogmen".
