The 32-foot sculpture of a seemingly bloodthirsty bronco is the work of artist Luis Jimenez. Commissioned as public art for the airport and installed in 2008, the horse represents the wild spirit of the old American west. It has also come to represent death, destruction, and deluded debates.

I never really thought about a cross as a war memorial before. If a surviving family wanted a cross, a crescent moon, or a star of David, (or nothing) on the individual grave marker, I was perfectly okay with that.
