DESCRIPTION OF “THE GIFT” BY TOM SCHOMBERG
Thomas Schomberg shares at the memorial of "The Gift" at the Riverside National Cemetery. Highlights of his share:
- The face is a model of a beautiful people
- The eagle feathers are symbolic of ALL the Tribes
- Strong stance, both legs firmly on the ground, not leaning back in arrogance or leaning forward in service. The specific pose of the statue is one used to show honor to a people it represents.
- Wrapped in a flag to represent over 200 years of military service to our country.
