Whether he is patrolling the hedgerows of Normandy, the jungles of the South Pacific, this scene is a far to familiar to many veterans.

Walking as stealthily as he can, this infantryman is on a reconnaissance mission and keeps a low profile. Placing one foot carefully in front of the other, the seasoned NCO scouts experience tells him to stay alert. As the scout steps on to a stone, he hears something off to his right. He freezes for a moment and shifts only his eyes. He knows his mission is not to engage the enemy, but his instinct tells him, if need be he will.

This monument is dedicated to the brave mountaineers who fought and died spear-heading the allied drive to push the German Army out of Italy during World War II. This monument also pays tribute to the veterans of America’s “ski troops” who in their peace-time role became leaders in business, sports, and the ski industry in America.
