This Italian marble sculpture created by an unknown artist was dedicated in 1932 and is approximately six feet tall. On a granite base is a dedication by the Class of 1932 to the students of Mississippi State College who died in service in WWI. The sculpture depicts a uni­formed and helmeted WWI soldier holding a rifle at his right side. He wears an ammunition belt from which is hanging a bayonet. A tree trunk behind him reaches to mid-thigh.
