The World War I Memorial Monument is a tablet measuring 3 feet wide by 1 foot deep by 5 feet tall. It honors our first veterans who joined the military to help the government of the United States fight in the first World War. Six members of the Southern Ute Indian Tribe joined while Native Americans were not even citizens of this country, but they nevertheless took the oath and went off to war.
One of these soldiers was Julius Cloud. He returned to become Chairman of the Southern Ute Tribe; his picture is on the monument, standing guard over the countries he fought in.
From Warrior to soldier to always protect his people and his country. His oath to the people of the United States of America.
