Seated female figure flanked by two kneeling servicemen. On her proper right is a soldier and on her proper left is a sailor. The female figure wears a long, very plain dress and a long cape. Her hair is pulled back from her face and she stares straight ahead. Her arms reach out and rest on the shoulders of the servicemen on either side of her. Her cape wraps around the back of the servicemen. Each male figure kneels on one knee with the other bent knee raised. The male figures, dressed in their military uniforms, hold their hats and bow their heads. The three figures rest atop a rectangular base.
