This elegant statue on the Parris Island Marine Corps Recruiting Station depicts a US Marine carrying a machine gun over his shoulder and raising his handgun with his left hand. An empty Marine helmet lies at his feet and two howitzers stand guard next to the base which is composed of Stony Creek granite. The memorial honors those Marines from Parris Island who died fighting in World War I.
