This project is a memorial statue with full dedication ceremony immortalizing a fallen hero. The memorial will be crafted by an individual artisan and built on Concrete, WA High School grounds where Douglas Vose started his life leaving an impression on the people; the true definition of honor, respect, courage, and hard work.
The statue will be a life-sized bronze sculpture of Doug in his Green Beret Uniform (Army Greens) and will be dedicated to the town of Concrete on July 27th 2013, two days prior to the 4 year anniversary of his death. The base of the statue will be constructed of engraved bricks in which sponsors will be literally supporting Doug's statue with their own words and memories.
The ceremony will be conducted at Concrete's High School. In addition to the dedication of the statue, the ceremony will include a full day of festivities in celebration of Doug's amazing life and sacrifice. Doug's brother, a Marine Corps Officer, has coordinated the day to include parachute operations with Force Recon and Army Special Forces who knew and fought with Doug.
