Long Description:
This memorial can be found in Fort Wayne's Memorial Park, near the entrance off Glasgow Avenue. The elaborate memorial features the classic Viquesney Doughboy alongside the less common "Spirit of the American Navy." The pair stand in front of a triple arched stone structure with inscriptions and plaques of the war dead. The entire memorial is well conceived, and the Viquesney statues are in good condition despite missing the rifle and barbed wire.
Where is this statue located?: Public Park
