1st Battalion 22nd Infantry
22nd Infantry Monument
A concept begun under
the auspices of LT COL Steve Russell (US Army Ret.)
to establish a memorial monument to the Soldiers of the 22nd US Infantry
is well under way. The site for the monument has been approved in Patriot Park
at the new museum at Fort Benning, GA.
The project is still in the planning and construction phase and needs our help and support.
The artist's visualization of the monument
showing the statue guarding the obelisk,
and a human figure to give perspective
to the size of the finished project.
The statue is completed and ready to be mounted
on the mounument.
Made out of bronze with lifelike detail
and composure, the figure represents
a Regular of 1st Battalion during the unit's
first tour of duty in Iraq.
The modern Soldier has been chosen to represent
the 22nd Infantry's committment to the future
of our nation.

The statue was modelled after SPC Cody
Hoefer, who served with HHC of 1-22 Infantry
in Iraq, 2003-2004. SPC Hoefer appeared on the cover of TIME magazine on March 15, 2004.
Funds are needed to complete the monument.
