L-237’s Diaz pays tribute to U.S. military

THE SACRIFICES MADE by U.S. soldiers are not lost on Rudy Diaz, a retired member from Local 237 (Hartford, Conn.) now living in Cape Coral, Fla. A few years back, Diaz was inspired to honor those serving in the armed forces by designing and building a bronze statue.

Diaz’s concept would include an Iraq war-era American soldier and an Iraqi boy standing and saluting the American flag. The boy’s salute would symbolize his appreciation for the courage and service of the soldiers who fought to free his country from tyranny.
