This monument consists of a copper WWI soldier in uniform with his front foot anchored on a rock. The soldier holds an angled rifle with bayonet, and has a pack against his chest.  The sculpture rests atop a tall granite plinth with cornice.  A bronze honor roll plaque is mounted to the front surface. 

The WWI monument, in front of the VFW Memorial Hall, is flanked by several other war memorials.
