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.
