There is no need to replace a statue with the likeness of another human being. How about naming it Veterans Memorial Circle, honoring our nation’s veterans of all wars. The column could be topped with the likeness of the American eagle. This would especially be appropriate because of its close proximity to the WWII Museum. The perimeter of the circle could have many flagstaffs flying our star-spangled banner.
