Tribute to Freedom, Lackland AF, San Antonio

Tribute to Freedom - a soaring 75 foot tall, lighted sculpture, which is the tallest metal sculpture in the state.

Artist George Schroeder says it includes forms representing the five branches of the U.S. military surrounding a towering obelisk which represents the country being protected by the military.

The 75-foot-tall central spire recalls the obelisk form of the Washington Monument. Around it, an airfoil-like wing and three curvilinear forms, representing the various branches of the military, create a “protective shroud” around the symbol of the nation’s capital.
