This WWI monument consists of two parts.  An rectangular granite slab contains a gabled bronze honor roll set in a frame with an upside-down shield in the gable. 

Placed on the ground in front of the slab is a bronze plaque set on a granite slab dedicating the monument to West Berlin residents who served in the war.  This plaque is dominated by an elaborate relief depiction of a flying eagle above crossed cannons, & a ribbon labeled, "Roll of Honor."  Behind the eagle is the depiction of several partially unfurled flags. 

The monument is located in Veterans Park alongside monuments honoring those who served in other wars.
