“The eagle has landed,” Lompoc Museum board of trustees member Don Adams told a crowd in front of the newly resculptured World War I monument Saturday.

After nearly three years of raising money and implementing repairs, the city now has a reborn World War I monument that sits in front of the city’s museum on 200 South H St.

And now the monument has a new feature sitting atop of the revitalized structure: a bronze bald eagle.

“There was a missing piece, and that very important piece now sits at the top,” Adams said over a microphone, drawing applause from the nearly 100 attendees.

“This is a celebration today, but it also continues to be a remembrance and honor to remember those who fell in this war so long ago.”
