Dedicated October 5, 2001

In 1999 - The 100th Anniversary of the founding of the Veterans of Foreign Wars - this bronze statue was commissioned to commemorate the organization's first century of service to veterans, those in uniform and the communities in which they live.

Three important aspects of the VFW's history are commemorated in the design:

First and foremost, the VFW member is helping the soldier, symbolizing VFW's support for veterans.

Secondly, the document in the member's hand symbolizes VFW's fight for veterans in public and political arenas.

Finally, the entire design speaks to the metamorphosis from soldier to citizen and VFW member.
