The memorial consists of life-size sculptures of American soldiers in full battle fatigues; interestingly there is one male and one female figure. This is one of the few battle memorials with a female figure in battle fatigues and gear. She has a gas mask and rifle over her shoulder while the male figure is wearing a helmet and carrying a semi-automatic weapon. There are also 3 benches that are dedicated to individuals from the area who lost their lives in the conflict. The beautiful landscape and base has desert vegetation and stone that make the sculptures stand out.
