Among the many beautiful and touching monuments and statues around the Washington State Capital in Olympia is this Monument: "Winged Victory".
This statue, erected on 30 May 1938, is dedicated to World War 1 Veterans. It includes bronze sculpture with a 12 foot-tall Winged figure and other figures of a soldier, sailor, Marine, and Red Cross Nurse.
This wonderful monument immediately caught my eye before we even got out of the car....Amazing and gripping...I hope you like this.
