About the Monument Design: This monument was created by designer Lee Rich, project manager at Drumey Rosanne Anderson Architects of Waltham, MA. The granite monument’s carefully chosen symbols are from the artist’s conversations with GWOT veterans’ and inspired by their stories.
The design for the monument is a 5 point star, with a circular walkway around it. Each point of the star represents a branch of the service: Army, Navy, Marines, Air force and Coast Guard. At the tip of each point the emblem of each specific branch will be displayed embedded into the stone.
In the center of the star is a pentagon with a granite slab that will rise 7 feet. On each side of this granite wall there will be a relief of Iraq and Afghanistan and a life-size, cut out silhouette of a soldier walking away from the countries toward the American flag. Viewed from either side the soldier is walking away from each of those counties, headed for home. In the middle of the pentagon are combat boot prints in concrete the color of desert sand. The footsteps will journey toward the American flag traveling away from the country to symbolize the journey home. Not all of the footprints will extend all the way across the pentagon to represent those solders who did not return home. The color of the monument will be sand, as these veterans said “Sand was everywhere”. Read more…
