Hi, Silverback, this is a good story but has been embellished somewhere down the line. I remembered because I had been sent this a couple years ago and checked it out on Snopes. Although the statue is indeed a tribute to our brave troops, the rest is quite cynical.

This is a good site for checking out stories passed on by email, they tend to take on a life of their own after a while!
