A “SALUTE” TO VETERANS
The YMCA of Greater Indianapolis and the Indianapolis Arts Council Sculptor Clay Enoch of the National Sculptor’s Guild was selected to build his piece, “Salute!”
“The sculpture will appeal to people of all walks of life and every generation,” said Aasif Bade, chair for the Pike Capital Campaign to build the new YMCA. “Salute will be a great place to gather and pay tribute to our veterans.”
- Five service men and women stand shoulder to shoulder, saluting each other, atop two 8-foot walls demonstrating the strength and camaraderie of all Veterans of the Armed Forces.
- Each will wear a sculpted hat to represent their branch of service – the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps and Navy.
- Veterans’ names will be added to the sculpture with a donation of $100 at YLovesVets.org. Place your order by Oct. 10 to be on the sculpture at the unveiling.
