"young boy gathering scrap metal" - victory '95 world war ii memorial

In September 1996, the Victory ’95 World War II Memorial was dedicated at Heartland of America Park in downtown Omaha. The memorial, dedicated on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II, was created by John Labja, with the financial support of local industry. The memorial depicts four scenes that are reminiscent of those who served in the military and at home during World War II.

The memorial depicts the following four scenes:
Returning Soldier with Children
Rosie the Riveter
Young Boy Gathering Scrap Metal
Farm Family with Folded American Flag
