“In honor of the Airborne Trooper whose courage, dedication, and traditions make him the world’s finest fighting man.”
The Iron Mikeis approximately 13″ tall from the statue’s base to Iron Mike’s helmet. The front-base of the statue is 4 inches wide and 7 inches long. Created to resemble the original “Iron Mike” here in Fayetteville, NC in posture and finish. Ft. Bragg’s most prominent symbol since 1961, “Iron Mike” was the creation of the wife of a former deputy post chaplain. His stance is that of an airborne soldier who has completed a combat jump. PFC Michael A. Scambellure, an 82nd Airborne Division soldier, who received the Silver Star for his heroic actions in Sicily, originally inspired the statue.
