Long Description:
According to the doughboysercher, this statue was...
Originally dedicated November 11, 1925, at the site of local patriotic observances. The front plaque was placed after World War II since it lists the names from that war. It is not known if there was an earlier plaque. The Doughboy has always been well-maintained, and was restored and refurbished in May 2001 (the rifle is missing the sling, however). The area in which it stands was also redesigned and landscaped at that time, primarily by volunteers and the efforts of [American Legion] Post 54

An additional plaque has been added to the west side for the "Global War on Terrorism."
Where is this statue located?: Public Park

Which branch of the Military does this statue depict?: Army
