Sculptor: Sandra Van Zandt
Capitol Historical Artifact Collection, State Preservation Board

The bronze statue portrays a service member and family parting ways for an overseas deployment in the Global War on Terror (2001 - ). Designed with the financial support and direct input of Gold Star Families, the design focuses on the sacrifice of the families of fallen veterans, a unique theme among the Capitol area monuments. The "Liberty" figure was modeled after the statue on the Texas Capitol dome, "The Goddess of Liberty," referencing Texas history, patriotism and pride.
