The Fallen Warriors Memorial in Morgan City includes statues depicting three soldiers: a World War I doughboy; a GI representing servicemen in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam; and a soldier who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. The middle soldier, dressed in a G.I. uniform, is kneeling while handing an American flag to a young boy. Behind the statues is a wall of honor with names of each soldier from the Tri-City area killed in combat or as a result combat wounds. (The Daily Review/Zachary Fitzgerald)
