It is located in San Diego, California at G Street Mole Park in the Port of San Diego (also known as Tuna Harbor Park) right next to the Midway Aircraft Museum and is the second. A temporary styrofoam was installed in 2007, in May of 2012 when it was sent back to New Jersey for restoration. In March 2012, the San Diego Unified Port District voted to purchase a bronze replacement for the loanerThe first Unconditional Surrender was installed in Sarasota, Florida 2005, at its bay frontAn automobile crash occurred on April 26, 2012 during which the Sarasota copy of the statue was struck and was damaged, this led to the statue being taken down by the city.
