A Soldier’s Journey is a study for a monumental bronze by Sabin Howard. In 2024, the finished piece measuring 58 feet wide will be the centerpiece, completing the new World War I Monument in Washington, DC.
University of Arkansas graduate Joe Weishaar won the World War I Monument design competition when he was just 25 years old. His concept, “The Weight of Sacrifice,” incorporates two sculptures, landscape elements, and a reflecting pool.

More than 100 years later, Howard uses art to convey the courage and sacrifice of American soldiers and the horrors of war.
