John Paulding (1883-1935) sculpted this bronze statue of a uniformed World War I infantryman in a charging pose, holding a rifle in his right hand and holding his left aloft.  His accessories include a gas mask and a canteen.  It is supported by a square base of gray granite, and was erected in 1929.

The inscription reads:

Rusk County

"Greater love
hath no man
than this."
