This monument was dedicated on November 11, 1919 in honor of those from Middleton who served in World War I and in memory of the four who died: Rupert M. Burstan; John Hoffecker; Jeremiah Jackson; and E. Davis Manlove. The original eagle atop the monument shattered during restoration in 2007 and a new eagle was unveiled in its place in 2008.
Marine Major General Roy Stanley Geiger (1885 - 1947) was a U.S. Marine Corps four-star general who served in World War I and World War II. During World War I, he served in France with 5 Group, Royal Air Force, at Dunkirk. He commanded a squadron of the First Marine Aviation Force and was attached to the Day Wing, Northern Bombing Group. For distinguished service in leading bombing raids against the enemy, he was awarded the Navy Cross. In World War II, he became the first Marine Corps general to lead an army-sized force. This memorial was restored and rededicated in 2015.
To commemorate the valor and sacrifice of the land, sea and air forces of the United States and all who rendered faithful and loyal service at home and overseas in the World War; to inculcate a true understanding and appreciation of the privileges of American citizenship; to inspire patriotism and respect for the laws to the end that peace may prevail, justice be administered, public order maintained and liberty perpetuated.
"The Doughboy", a bronze World War I uniformed soldier holding a flag on a 12-foot tall granite pedestal, was sculpted by Humberto J. Pedretti and dedicated on July 4, 1924 to honor all WWI veterans. At the top of the pedestal are two bands of stars, at the bottom a bronze eagle, on the back a bronze medal, and on the front a bronze olive branch and helmet. Originally the monument stood at the northwest corner of Pershing Square as a gateway piece for the park. After the Pershing Square garage was constructed in the 1950s, The Doughboy was transferred to the southeast corner. In 1963 the statue was moved to the park's center, where it remained until it was relocated to the Palm Court when Pershing Square was redesigned in 1994.
The inscription reads:
"Dedicated to the sons and daughters of Los Angeles who participated in World War, 1917-1918".
