Photograph by Project Staff. The monument to Major Richard "Dick" Meadows stands larger than life, at approximately eight feet tall and weighing pounds. Standing on a four and a half foot brown granite base, the bronze statue depicts the Special Operations commander in full combat attire carrying a Car semi-automatic rifle. He stands firm and courageous, but cautious as he takes a small step. With his weapon at the ready in his right hand, his left hand is held at his side, palm open and moving slightly back to suggest to those he leads both danger and his ability to protect.
