This memorial is a modern adaptation of the classic Greek stele which was erected by the ancient Helenes in memory of soldiers who fell in foreign wars.  Made of Vermont granite, it has a female figure representing Peace in high relief, standing atop a pedestal with arms and wings slightly spread.  She wears a robe with a tie at the waist. Her hands are resting on columns at her sides.
