Military Support sculpture2.jpg Not to be outdone by the Lewis and Ordway tributes outside Fort Lewis, the folks in Lacey are unveiling a new statue Saturday that pays tribute to military families.

The work by sculptor Gareth Curtis of Olympia depicting a soldier reuniting with his wife and daughter will stand at the corner of Quinnault Drive Northeast and Marvin Road, just off Exit 111 on Interstate 5. A dedication ceremony is set for 10 a.m. Saturday.

The Hawks Prairie Rotary raised $300,000 for the project.
