Long Description:
This bronze sculpture of a mother and daughter is at the end of the Women's Veteran Monument fountain, at a reflecting pool. Both the woman and girl sit on the marble bench, facing each other. The woman is wearing her Guard uniform, with her right hand resting on her lap, and her left hand resting on the bench. The little girl has her left leg resting on the floor, with her right leg bent and folded under the left. Her left hand rests on her lap, and her right arm is raised with her hand touching her hat. Her face is tilted to the side.

From the guthrienewspage.com :

The polished black granite monument depicts five slightly-larger-than-life uniformed women with an additional National Guard uniformed woman speaking with a little girl inquiring when she can serve. The mother and daughter are sitting at a reflecting pool prior to the mother’s departure to serve her country as Army National Guard, since they are normally the first to deploy.
