This granite gateway on the ellipse honors the U.S. Army's Second Division. In the gateway opening resides a dramatic 18-foot tall gilded flaming sword that is held by a large right hand. The sword bears the insignia of the Second Divison -- an Indian head. Flanking the gateway are two walls on which are etched the two laurel wreaths and the names of the battles and campaigns in which the Divison participated and at the top of the arch over the gateway it simply reads "The Second Division." All lettering is gilded. Two low walls extend farther out and end in eagle-topped flagpoles. The memorial honors all those fallen heroes of the Division from the World War I, World War II, and Korea.
