My husband heard about this on the news today and picked me up after work so we could go see it and get some pictures.
It is very overcast and gray today, which is a shame because this sculpture is pretty amazing. Jerry Roiger of Fargo is a wood carver. He used the snow in his backyard and carved this into it. It took him about fifteen hours over five days with the help of his wife, Marlynda. You can tell by garage and car in the background how massive this sculpture actually is. I'm going to try to go over tomorrow night and get a photo of it in the dark when it is all lit up.
According to the Fargo Forum newspaper, Jerry Roiger has been waiting for enough snow to get to do this; calling it a Mount Rushmore style salute to the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. Here is the article in the Forum (local paper).
Here it is all lit up at night.
