A World War I soldier stands at parade rest. Both hands clutch the barrel of his rifle, the butt of which rests on the ground. He wears a helmet, shirt, pants and boots and leans his right leg against a stump. He stands atop a granite, multi-tiered base. The front of the base contains a plaque honoring the veterans of Highlands.
