This memorial was sculpted by Anton Schaaf and was dedicated on November 11, 1928. It is a full length bronze figure of a World War I soldier, dressed in uniform and holding his rifle barrel in his left hand. In his right hand is his helmet, raised high to the air.  On the granite base is a bronze plaque which depicts the seal of the U.S. encircled by a laurel wreath.  Beneath the seal are the images of eight men, four in uniform and four civilians, with one from each shaking hands.
