In August, our newest statue will be emplaced in Memorial Grove. This statue, created by James Hall of JH Creative, is expected to be finished and emplaced in the grove during the first week of August. It will sit on a concrete pad about 60” wide and located to the left of the seating area in the grove on the path between the World War II MP Soldier and the Marechaussee on Horseback.
Hall was able to spend time observing the dogs and handlers in action in order to create a clear vision for the project. He wanted to capture the military working dog in action and intends for the statue to represent the dedication and excitement the dogs have for their work.
“I hope that once the statue is finished, it will remind visitors of their super sharp focus on their handlers’ commands and complete commitment to the mission,” said Hall.
