veteran's day

107th Regiment Monument 

The World War I service of New York’s 107th infantry regiment 
is honored with a large bronze sculpture 
in 
Central Park.

The 107th Regiment Monument, 
dedicated in 1927, 
features seven soldiers, 
in a variety of poses, 
on a large granite base. 

Three soldiers in the middle are charging, 
the soldier on the far right 
(as you face the monument) 
is preparing to throw hand grenades, 
and 
the second soldier from the left 
is 
supporting a badly wounded comrade.

The east face of the monument’s base bears an inscription reading:
 “Seventh Regiment New York, 
One Hundred and Seventh United States Infantry,
in memoriam,
1917-1918.”

Today, 
Veteran's Day, 
we honor 
all 
who served

all 
who serve 
to protect us

Thank you 
all.
