Local artist Ted Scherer proudly displays the latest wood carving creation to his expansive outdoor showcase at the American Legion Don Gentile Post 532, located at 5171 Demorest Road. For more than a year, the resident of the westside has been carving mostly military-inspired creations out of felled trees at this location to pay homage to the men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces. He said he was given free reign with this piece and decided he wanted to honor the time he served in the Army’s Airborne Division (1969-71). He joked that the reason why he made this Corcoran boot the focal point was because he wanted to draw attention to the “greatest piece of footwear the military ever had.” Scherer has four pieces on display at the American Legion Don Gentile Post 532, all located within proximity to the shelter house closest to the parking lot.
