Large, greenish metal fist juts out of the ground, holding a real American flag.

Bronze Fist Holds Flag

It is dedicated to veterans, but appears to be the fist of a robot.

The memorial was dedicated back in 1993, when giant patriotic cyborgs fought our wars.

Green hand holding an American flag

I passed by a green hand holding an American flag on US 98. It is 7 to 12 feet tall, and is best seen going west on US 98. It is not far from I-10, just a few miles south of Exit 35.

Also, at Wilcox Rd (Baldwin CR 64, I-10 Exit 53) in Alabama, is a water park called Styx River, and has a lot of tall men (like cowboys and sailors) and animals (I saw a large cow) there. I didn't get to stop and take a picture, I was going on I-10 heading west towards Mobile.
