A granite exedra bench supports two bronze figures, a winged angel about to embrace a uniformed soldier.  Sculptor Carl Augustus Heber (1875-1956) of New York created this memorial which was dedicated on May 30, 1923 on Courthouse Square to honor the 132 from Marathon County who died in service in World War I; it was moved in 1954 to the grounds of the present courthouse. The Veterans of Foreign Wars Burns Post 388 raised $20,629 from the community to build the statues. 

"Erected by the people of Marathon County and Burns Post No. 388 Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. in grateful appreciation of the noble sacrifices of those from this county who gave their lives in the World War 1917–1918."
