Winged Victory

This statue appears atop one of the buildings in the Arizona State Capitol complex in downtown Phoenix. It looked very familiar to me when I saw it for the first time on the day I took this picture, and I think I know why: I am almost certain that a replica of this same statue -- which itself might be a replica of the original -- was erected at one of the United States military cemeteries in Europe, possibly the one overlooking Omaha Beach in Normandy.
