Sculptor Charles Keck was hired to create a monument to those killed during World War I from Lynchburg. His bronze, The Listening Post (The Doughboy) statue, was installed in 1926 at the base of Monument Terrace, taking the place of the dolphin fountain. Inscribed in the wall behind the statue are local military unit designations and the names of 43 casualties.
On May 30, 1930, an impressive monument was dedicated at Fort Lewis honoring the Army's 91st Division. The monument, featuring six statues and a 40-foot tall shaft, recalls the division's wartime contribution and honors its war dead. Sculptor Avard Fairbanks (1897-1987) designed the statues and noted Seattle architect John Graham Sr. (1873-1955) designed the monument. Frank McDermott, president of the Bon Marche Department store, donated the funds to build it. Since its dedication, the monument has become a prominent Joint Base Lewis-McChord symbol, where it continues to honor national sacrifice.
The monument is a granite pillar faced with a bronze eagle and a plaque with names of those from Elko County fallen in the Great World War. It stands in front of the courthouse in downtown Elko, Nevada.

The Harlan Doughboy was unveiled on Armistice Day, November 11, 1930, to honor the 30 Harlan County men who gave their lives in World War I and whose names are cast in bronze at the base of the statue. A parade opened the ceremonies. Mayor L.O. Smith, in uniform, led the parade with the Benham High School Band immediately following. National Guard, Legionnaires, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and school children also participated. After the parade ended in front of the courthouse, the National Guard fired salutes with rifles, while machine guns rattled salutes from the top of the courthouse.
ocated on the campus of the Pike County Courthouse in Pikeville, KY, this Viquesney statue is in excellent condition and has the original barbed wire still in place. It features plaques on all four sides honoring those who gave their all in their country's service during WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam.
Attempts to learn the initial dedication date of this Doughboy haven’t been successful. The Smithsonian record states an installation year of 1920, but that's not possible, since the first Viquesney Doughboy wasn't completed and manufactured until 1921. Also, the copyright mark bears the name Spencer, Indiana rather than Americus, Georgia. Copyrights listing Spencer didn't appear until 1926 or 1927, after Viquesney reacquired the rights to his Doughboy company from his former business partner in Americus, Walter Rylander.
A search of files of old newspapers through 1929 by Pikeville Librarian, Christy Fleming, didn’t find an article that mentioned its dedication so its likely it was originally dedicated in the range of 1930-1933. The plaza where it is located did not exist then, at least in its current form, so it has been relocated at some date, even though it was probably always somewhere in Courthouse Square.
This memorial commemorates the residents of LaRue County who were killed or missing in World War I.
