Honoring Andrew Jackson Higgins, Veterans, and Freedom for All

“Andrew Higgins”…Eisenhower said, “is the man who won the war for us” “…if Higgins had not designed and built those LCVPs, we never could have landed over an open beach.  The whole strategy of the war would have been different.”

Honoring all National Guard and Reserves

This sculpture honors all members of the National Guard and Reserves, especially those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. The bronze statue depicts a male and female soldier representing those who have served since the Vietnam War.

Attached to the pedestal are plaques displaying the names of the generous donors who helped fund the sculpture.  The monument was commissioned by Fred Hoppe.

Freedom

Following the first dedication on August 23, 2001 the United States was struck with the first terrorist attack on our home soil.  Pieces of World Trade Center steel were secured to build a sculpture for the memorial. This sculpture was built in honor of those who lost their lives in this attack. It also honors all people who are involved in the war against terrorism.

A large bronzed Freedom Eagle, with a wingspan of eight feet, towers over the World Trade Center steel sculpture. The two structures do not touch to symbolize that terrorists cannot destroy freedom.

"Very neat place to visit. Being a veteran, the memorial brick wall is an honor to visit. Seeing the steel from the Twin Towers is neat."

"We visited your park last week. We were looking for a stopping point between Wall, SD, and mid-Iowa. Well, as I found a place in Columbus, I saw mention of your park. That was the deciding point! We were amazed at the detail of this historic place. My husband's father landed in one on D-Day. The park is very moving and needs more exposure! I rank it up with visiting many other more famous places such as Gettysburg and Valley Forge! God bless and thank you for this amazing place!"
