The World War II Memorial in Pierre, South Dakota shows six life size, historically accurate statues of soldiers representing the military branches in which South Dakotans served.
The statues are set on a peninsula built into Capital Lake. In front of the memorial is a flowing artesian well.

The inscription reads "South Dakota World War II Warriors, They fought For Flag, For Country, For Us."

This is the first monument to World War II Veterans by any state in the Union.
