This life-size bronze figure, prone and wrapped in a tarpaulin, was sculpted by A. Thomas Schomberg and dedicated to war veterans on Memorial Day 1986.  The figure lies atop an 11-ft. tall rectangular platform, inspired by a Plains Indian custom of placing their dead on a high scaffold in presentation to the spiritual world.  This memorial was a gift of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas F. Kane.
