Stop 10: Iron Mike Statue

  • Overview

    This 15-foot statue is dedicated to the airborne trooper who is always watching, waiting, and alert. “Iron Mike,” the post’s most prominent symbol since 1961, 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. The cover art for the book Devils in Baggy Pants inspired this statue. This is the original statue; There is an exact replica on Fort Bragg at Randolph and Armistead Streets.

    Hours: Daily, before dusk. Open to the public.

    Next Stop: North Carolina Veterans Park shares a parking lot with the Airborne and Special Operations Museum.
