Statue Honoring Special Operations Aviation Unveiled at Fort Bragg | Military.com

Soldiers assigned to the home of U.S. Army Special Operations Aviation Command will now have a constant and unique reminder of their mission outside the headquarters on Fort Bragg.

A sculpture depicting the Greek god of war, Ares, riding a pegasus centaur was unveiled Tuesday. The life-size bronze figures sit atop a massive granite block just outside ARSOAC.

Ares, mid scowl, has his sword raised as he appears ready to leap into battle. The pegasus centaur has its bow drawn and aimed at some unseen enemy.

Brig. Gen. John R. Evans Jr., the commanding general of ARSOAC, said the statue was a tribute to the unit and its soldiers.
