--- "The Veterans' Memorial" - Sculpture honoring sacrifices of all American Veterans - 19 ft.x 22 ft.- Polson, Montana
--- Sculpture's detail ---
"Our community sponsored a Freedom Day event, honoring
all of our military serving or having served in the Armed Forces.
As part of an everlasting tribute in honor of those who have given to our
country, a memorial sculpture was erected at the end of the bridge in Polson,
now re-named the Armed Forces Memorial Bridge. Artist, Brian Schmid,
created the sculpture of a soldier saluting the U.S.flag that rests on
the five emblems of each branch of the Armed Forces. I found Brian
to take much pride and personal perfection in this and other sculptures
he has created. This memorial sculpture stands at the entrance and exit
to our City for all to see. I thank Brian for his work and diligence in
the creation of this sculpture that serves as a hallmark of pride for our
community." --- Rick E. Skates, Chairman
