VFW Veterans' Monument
 
 
VFW Veterans' Monument  (#4)
 
The American soldier standing guard atop the globe on the Veterans of Foreign Wars memorial is symbolic of the watchful and ever-vigilant eye that our nation's military maintains around the world. 
 
We are reminded of the unwavering service by all of America's veterans -- those who have served during war and peacetime now and in the past.
 
The inscription on the base of bronze globe says the memorial "is dedicated to all who have served in the armed forces of the United States, and to those who even now, guard the gates of freedom."
 
Donated by the Department of Oregon VFW of the United States, the monument was commissioned and created to be placed on the ODVA's grounds. 
 
Artist and Vietnam combat veteran Roger McGee designed the memorial.
