A simple granite stone marks the entrance to the 11th Airborne Division or “Angels” Division memorial. It is inscribed with the unit’s insignia which includes the Airborne patch and the Glider patch. Down a small walkway is the main memorial circle which centers on a large memorial composed of two octagonal granite bases on which sits a large rectangular granite stone which is topped by a bronze life-size soldier with his arm raised holding his rifle. The marker states it is dedicated to the officers and men of the 11th Airborne Division who served from 1942 to 1958. On a low wall surrounding the statue is inscribed the history of the Division and the battles and campaigns in which it served mainly during World War II and Korea.
