Fort Sill – Americal Artillery Monument

By Roger Gilmore;  July 27, 2016

Construction work started on the Fort Sill, Oklahoma Americal Artillery monument project in July 2016. The Lawton, Oklahoma concrete contractor Boyles Contracting did the initial excavation work for the concrete pad and poured concrete for the sub foundations that support the era pedestals located at the back of the pad. We were advised by the monument company, Willis Granite, that we will see a slight delay in completing the carving work for the era pedestals. Some minor imperfections were found on the back side of one of the pieces of granite. The foundation decided to have Willis Granite replace the two granite pieces with a better grade of stone. The replacement stone has been reordered and we expected the finished pedestals to be ready for placement on the sub foundations in September.
