The Doughboy was dedicated around 1922 and served honorably and faithfully for many years. With time it was updated to be an All Wars Memorial. Around 2011 the Doughboy was removed from the base and the base was moved to the Anadarko Philomathic Museum (formerly the Burlington Northern Train Depot.) The Doughboy is temporarily displayed in the Caddo County Courthouse.
This memorial base is approximately five feet square. It sits on a foot-thick granite base. At each corner is a rounded pillar. Three sides have granite slabs engraved with the names of those local veterans who served in four wars.
The monument has a metal roof. On each side of the roof the words "IN MEMORY OF OUR BRAVE BOYS" is engraved, along with an eagle in relief. The fourth side has an engraved wreath. The three granite slabs commemorate those who fought in:
World World I - 46
World War II - 78
Korea - 8 / Vietnam - 24
This monument formerly stood in front of the Caddo County Courthouse in Anadarko.
