"Metal sculpture of a "doughboy" from World War I was crafted by Ken Nyberg. Ken, a regional metal artist, has created many wonderful, life-like, realistic and whimsical statues that are on display in many local communities. Many of his sculptures are made with bits of scrap metal.

This statue is a memorial to World War I but the plaque honors all veterans."

The Mendota Bridge (full name Fort Snelling – Mendota Bridge) carries Minnesota State Highway 55 over the Minnesota River between Fort Snelling and Mendota Heights. It is the final bridge over the Minnesota River before the Minnesota flows into the Mississippi River at the "Meeting of the waters" or "Mendota" in the Dakota language.

The structure was designed by C.A.P. Turner and Walter H. Wheeler. Turner also designed the Aerial Lift Bridge in Duluth, Minnesota and the Liberty Memorial Bridge between Bismarck and Mandan, North Dakota.

The bridge is dedicated to the "Gopher Gunners", 151st Field Artillery who died in World War I.

Minnesota's Merci Boxcar arrived in Minneapolis on February 13, 1949. The following day at 10:30 a.m. in what could only be described as miserable conditions, icy cold and windy, a brief ceremony was held on the front steps of the Capitol. Speakers included Governor Luther Youngdahl; Jacques Fermaud, the French consul in Minneapolis; J. J. Viala, the French consul general of Chicago; and Gladys Peterson, a 15-year-old school girl from Tyler, Minnesota in recognition of the work the state's school children performed when the Friendship Train came through Minnesota.

Veterans of WW1

New Ulm's copy of E.M. Viquesney's much-duplicated "Spirit of the American Doughboy" was dedicated by the local VFW post in 1941 (then redone in 1995). John McCrae's iconic poem, "In Flanders Field," is inscribed at the base of the statue. Not far away stands a slightly older memorial: a flagpole erected "In memory of all war veterans" by the American Legion on November 11, 1934.
