MG Bargewell Statue
The statue of Major General Eldon Bargewell is the centerpiece of the Delta Park triangle. The lifelike bronze statue is intricately detailed. Miltary advisors provided input to Rip on the uniform and gear to ensure an authentic representation of Eldon Bargewell, the soldier.
The statue pedestal features bronze plaques on the front and sides, highlighting General Bargewell’s Distinguished Service Cross award, military career, and awards. The plaques were designed by Dave Mitchell, a high school classmate of General Bargewell.
