Bonus Soldier

The subject of this latest carving "Bonus Soldier" is a WWI Doughboy.  The soldier is wearing a classic helmet & uniform.  The carving has a smooth field. The subject of my nickel carving is based on the Bonus March of 1932.  It was the Great Depression & thousands of WWI veterans & families came to Washington D.C. to protest. Their demand was immediate payment of the combat service bonus.  The protest was met by U.S. Military force.  The veterans & families were forced from Washington D.C.
