Just put Furniture Row in your GPS (6000 Franklin Ave., Waco, TX 76710), and turn into the first driveway right after Furniture Row, which is right next door. You can't miss the soldier, he'll be on your right and he's huge.

Tin Soldier

This 79-foot-tall incinerator has been turned into a huge Tin Soldier, with a face pointing in both directions so you can see him from Loop 340 no matter which way you are driving.

The incinerator made its Tin Soldier transformation in November 2014.
