Soldier of Humanity

A tribute to the medical soldiers who died (WWII)

A memorial to the men of the Medical Corps, with which Koni served during the WWII. The statue is two and a half feet high; cast in bronze on a granite base making it 28 to 30 feet in height. Koni entered the Army in 1944 and took basic training at Camp Grant, Illinois. During his work with the Medical Corps, he was inspired by their bravery and selflessness and created the Tribute to the Medical Solider, which is now suggested as the first and so far, only tribute to the Medical Soldiers who died that others might live during World War II.
