Last Saturday, I noticed a couple men removing
the little squadron of fiberglass toy soldiers
from their posts on Monument Circle.
As a truck pulling the troop's transport slowly drove around
the monument, a sling was put under each soldier's arms,
then he was lifted from his post on to the trailer.
Finally, they were carted away to home base,
to be stored until just before Thanksgiving,
when they will again be assigned special duty,
bringing joy to visitors on the Circle
during the Christmas season.
