Alert Air Ground Controller

Whenever I visit the Korean War Veterans Memorial, I'm always drawn to this statue in position 11. It depicts a United States Air Force Air Ground Controller carrying a M-1/2Carbine weapon. I often imagine that he is staring off into the distance to watch for enemy aircraft. He rests his weight on his left foot with his right foot slightly raised off the ground as he keeps his watchful gaze on the horizon. I frequently photograph him in the hope I'll catch him one day out of position because he seems so real. So far, no such luck.
