The memorial consists of a bronze female figure of Memory standing on a small granite base in the middle of large granite architectural setting. Memory is draped in a long robe and she holds a wreath and a World War I helmet on her proper left arm. Her proper right hand is held up to her cheek in contemplation and she stands with her weight resting on her proper right leg. The sculpture is installed against a tall granite wall that is flanked by two low granite walls and two granite benches. Six bronze inscription plaques are set into the low granite walls on either side of the sculpture and one bronze inscription plaque is set into the base beneath the sculpture.
