Over There: Mechanicsville's Spirit of the American Doughboy Statute

The Spirit of the American Doughboy statue in Mechanicsville, Iowa is a favorite photo target of mine. Although I have posted other photos of the E.M. Viquesney sculpture previously, this time the corn is coming up in the fields during Memorial Day weekend. The WWI doughboy is one of several statues sold to communities following the Great War for use in cemeteries, parks and near municipal buildings.
