Last month on November 11 we unveiled American Veterans Park in West Point, Nebraska. Lieutenant Governor of Nebraska Mike Foley was there, as were hundreds of people that braved the cold, including my mom, step dad and brother all the way out from California. The park is still not completed as we are waiting for funding for the last 4 statues, two life size statues and two large scale reliefs. Even without the final sculptures plus a few granite columns, the site was very well received. This veterans park will be, for the remainder of my life, one of the highlights of my sculpting career. When it’s all done there will be 10 of my sculptures permanently installed here. There is also a couple of small details that were included at the site in my dads honor that I will cherish for a long time.
This year we permanently installed two sculptures, Gold Star Wife and Returning Home. Next year I plan to install Remembering and Saluting Air Force Sergeant.
