Protectors of the American Way Monument


Norwood, MA



The late Frank Simoni, a longtime resident of Norwood, Massachusetts and a patriotic American, traveled to Italy in the late 1980s. He was so inspired by the sculpture and monuments he saw there that upon his return he decided to donate a monument to his hometown. He commissioned Robert and Skylight Studios to design and create this monumental work for the town common. The three bronze soldiers at the foot of the base are symbolically protecting the “American Family” above, represented by the man, woman, and child. The stone is inscribed with the phrase “The Price of Freedom is Eternal Vigilance.”
