Memorial Inventory Project:  There is one other existing partial database to consult - The WWI Memorial Inventory Project [CLICK HERE]. It contains some memorials our map doesn't. The listings on this database are fair game for the Memorial Hunters Club. So if you want to search for treasure from your desk - find missing listings here and submit them. Remember though, you will need to come up with pictures and the history of the memorial. You might be able to hunt that down through www.Proquest.com and Google.

Made of black granite, the Warrior Memorial is 10 feet tall, and it’s human figures are close to life-size. 
At the memorial’s highest point is an eagle’s head. The eagle is a symbol of strength, says Corwin “Corky” Clairmont, the memorial’s designer and Art Director at Salish Kootenai College since 1984.
The eagle’s wings span the length of the memorial, enclosing a series of images, including those of 2 bison and 2 warriors. One of those figures is a warrior woman. An infant n a cradleboard hangs off the saddle horn, and the Woman Warrior riding the horse is holding an Eagle fan. Listed on the walls are the names of more than 1,200 men and women (Native and non-Native) from the Flat Head Reservation who have served in the military.
