The statue of THE SCOUT portrays the typical World War II and Korean War era Staff Sergeant attired in full battle gear of the time.

Spare ammunition clips are stored in one of his back pouches. He is carrying a hand grenade, a trench knife, and a(n en)trenching tool. THE SCOUT was created in 2000 by Robert J.
