Leonard Craske sculpted this striding WWI soldier carrying his rifle in his right hand. He is dressed in his winter uniform, carrying a rucksack, extra shoes, a canteen, a shovel and gas mask. Beneath him is a granite slab, and behind him is a granite wall bearing bronze relief plaques showing scenes from the Civil, Revolutionary and Spanish-American Wars. It was dedicated on November 11, 1929, and rededicated in May of 1950 to include the veterans from later wars.
