The Horse Soldier Statue was the first public monument dedicated to U.S. Special Forces. It is also the first memorial near Ground Zero to honor the heroes of the September 11 terrorist attacks. The Horse Soldier statue honors service members of U.S. Special Operations forces and their response to 9/11, including those who fought in the first phase of the War in Afghanistan. The operation led to the Taliban’s initial defeat in Afghanistan, although the Taliban eventually won after a 20-year war with the United States.

The sculptor who created the Horse Soldier statue has been a horse trainer for 18 years and is a fan of military history. He has completed more than 200 private and public commissions and has received numerous awards. Shortly after U.S. troops entered Afghanistan on Nov. 16, 2001, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was inspired to create the sculpture by a photograph he displayed at a news conference at the Naval Training Center in Great Lakes, Illinois.

The statue was introduced to the public during the Veterans Day parade in New York City on November 11, 2011. The statue was displayed on a float that took the parade from 23rd Street north to 56th Street. That same day, in the early days of the war in Afghanistan, Vice President Joe Biden and Lt. Gen. John Mulholland, commander of Special Operations Command and former commander of Task Force Dagger, presided over a ceremony. New York City steelworkers who helped build the World Trade Center were among those who helped transport, move and temporarily install the statue in the West Street lobby of One World Financial Center in New York City. It is the first publicly accessible monument to U.S. Special Operations Forces. On November 19, 1969, a special Operations memorial statue commemorating the actions of green Berets during the Vietnam War was placed at Meadows Memorial Field in Fort Bragg, NORTH Carolina, but all visitors had to pass through base security. The land for One World Trade Center was donated by a private Wall Street firm. If you like this Horse Soldier statue, welcome to contact us.
