Tribute to Freedom

“Tribute to Freedom” by San Antonio artist George Schroeder, in collaboration with local landscape architect Larry Hicks, is comprised of five metal forms representing the five branches of the United States Armed Forces: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps and Navy. The 75-foot-tall aluminum and steel artwork includes a central obelisk, which is modeled after the Washington monument. The other four figures surround the central obelisk, representing the military’s protection of the United States.
