The monument commemorates several wars, beginning with World War I. Placed on a small, oval traffic island, this vertical shaft rests on a flat granite slab. The shaft is a tapered granite block, square in cross-section, topped by a bronze globe. Atop the globe is perched a bronze eagle with wings outspread.
A bronze plaque contains honor rolls from both WWI and WWII. Honor rolls from the Korean and Viet Nam wars are also attached beneath.
