This monument consists of a rusticated granite square column with a central long inset vertical section topped with a segmented arch.  The column capital is topped by a concrete hemisphere, which is in turn, surmounted by a concrete orb, both resting on a base.  An iron eagle in flight is mounted to the top of the orb.

The base of the statue has a bronze honor roll plaque on its front side, which is also constructed of rusticated granite. 

The monument is placed on a landscaped triangular traffic island in downtown Garfield.
