Two statues, “The Spirit of the American Doughboy” and “The Spirit of the American Navy” were donated by the American Legion Post 7 to acknowledge 38 local men who died in World War I.  They were originally dedicated on November 11, 1927 at the opening ceremony of the Memorial Causeway Bridge.  The new Memorial Causeway Bridge was completed in 2005 and the statues were restored and installed on the east end of the bridge in 2006.
