Larry Jensen used a chain saw to carve this wooden eagle from a white pine stump. It raises its right wing to represent soldiers who returned from service, and holds its left wing to its side to represent those who did not return. It was dedicated on October 13, 1991. as a tribute to the veterans of wars from WWI through the Persian Gulf War.
