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.
