. Honoring veterans of WWI and WWII. Located at the southeast corner of the Missoula County Courthouse lawn, on the corner of Broadway and Ryman, this cast bronze sculpture of a First World Way soldier was created by J. Pauling in 1921. A 1927 plaque lists WWI veterans and a 1948 plaque lists WWII Veterans. It is very similar, to, but distinct from, the widely dispersed piece by E. M. Visquesney entitled "Spirit of the American Doughboy".
